Atmosphere is congenial. Nice location on the Ganges. Wait staff good. Pizza poor by western standards. The worst I've eaten in several years though I ordered extra cheese and even tried the ketchup to give it some flavor. If you like pizza order something else.

The pizzas here are quite good considering there is no meat on them. I had one with eggplant and, I think, mushrooms, which was quite delicious. And the crusts are always good and crispy. No alcohol, of course, but delicious blends (smoothies?) of fresh fruit, e.g., pineapple. And the apple pie is quite good.

Anecdote: I accidentally left my vest (with my wallet and passport) on the back of my chair when we left. When I came back an hour later, the waiter had found it and everything was still intact. So they honest too!

Popularly known as Pizzeria, here you will get exellent thin crust pizzas coming out from a huge a clay oven. The restaurant is alfresco outside dining and lots of greenry around. But for pizzas and apple pie of such wonderful quality, you can take a risk of bird`s drop as well. Very reasonably priced, Pizzas between 100 to 170 rupees. Their pineapple and mix veg pizza is worth a try. Even, their noodle soup is also good with portion size of two. Do not try garlic bread,they are normal bread slices,Pastas are also ok type and can be tried. The menu also is having Indian and chinese options. Indian is good but chinese is like good in taste but with indian taste. Their apple pie is one of the best i ever had. They do not serve non veg and alcohol but they do have clausthaler,non alcoholic German Beer.

They have no provision for wash room and a temporary one is not like for humans. But, the place gives good value for money and atmosphere is also very pleasant. A recommendable place to dine.

Who'd have thought there was a wood-fired oven on the Ganges? Vaatika provided a healthy change of pace from the food coma-inducing standard Indian fare. The mixed vegetables pizza was delicious and only 150 rupees. The mosquitoes can be relentless so take it to go. Open late also - I believe until 10pm. Popular tourist spot but worthy of the hype.

We ate here for both of our nights in Varanasi because it was so good! The pizzas are awesome but don't pass up the Indian dishes either, they're just as good.
