Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

One of the tastiest Italian meals I've had outside Italy. Attentive staff and lovely comfortable and cosy atmosphere. Will be back again.

The food was great, the place and design was fantastic, the only negative factor was the staff. Kind of shocking that the waitress forgot which wine was which and of course messed it up.

Lunch with the family turned into best food this week. We had variety… pizza, pasta, meat and ribs and deserts . No disappointment. For the owners… if you wish to be better, please extend the choice for those who suffer on food allergies.

Unfortunatelly, menu is veeery limited and contains nothing which would not be offered in the neighboring restaurants of both Horny and Dolny Smokovec. Quality of the food was average, no specific tastes or ideas. Pork tenderlion was too done for our taste. Waiting time for...the starters was 25 minutes and they did not require any special preparing. Price is too high for the region and the quality offered.More

We had a pleasure to visit the restaurant and taste its outstanding, delicious food. I must confess that food was delicious - we had pizza which was light and tasty, ribs and salad. Everything was great but the waiter. An arrogant, ignoring person who was...obviously bothered and disgusted as he had to be at work - I am sorry but who’s there to serve the customers? Should we serve ourselves on our own? Or should we leave without payment to be noticed? Nothing could ruined such an amazing atmosphere of this wonderful restaurant, but this waiter.More

I’ve visited this restaurant with friend of mine. We were looking for a cozy and nice restaurant to have a good dinner and this restaurant is really fantastic. Food was an AMAZING, place itself and the staff of the restaurant were great as the whole...place is. In this area you can find many great restaurant but this one touched my heart :-) We had their own pizza, called “Pizza Olivia” and Cisarsky trhanec as dessert. So delicious. Great place for couples, friends and families.More

Firstly, i must admit that this place has amazing interior. As for the food almost all dishes selected were great. Our family was surprised with the decoration. I found this place over reviews in Trip Advisor and i did not regret it. Some comments say...about service but we had good service when we visited this place. Prices are fair. Will visit again.More

Very beautiful interior in the beautiful scenery of Stary Smokovec. We had high expectations after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, however the menu did not suggest anything out of the ordinary. We were surprised that no one came to show us to a free table, and...we had to approach the staff for the menu cards and then to order. You could see that some regular upper class Slovakians were their main focus, and all the tables were reserved. We chose two seats by the fireplace. I had mushroom soup which was good, and my other half had chicken soup, however it arrived cold. We would have commented on it, but there was a language barier and they seemed busy. We would go there for tea after skiing, but there are other places more worthwhile when it comes to food.More

That's rather uncommon for myself to leave review however this time I feel I have to. We've been to many places however this one is like by far one of the BEST...and we are rather demanding ;) Very friendly staff to start with, fire place...making space "alive" but be sure that it's just a preludium! We had a mushroom soup,pizza and a pork tenderloin with Italian prosciutto. Food was delicious!! Pizza make you feel like in the heart of Italy...if not better, tenderloin was made just ideal, smooth, delicate with superb souce and crunchy prosciutto around. To be honest we weren't expecting to find such place in the middle of Tatra Mountains. That is my number one in the area! For sure we will come back and recommend to friends. Keep it that way!!!More
