On the banks of ganga,this place is quite famous,have been there many times. The food is just average. Have tried mostly pizzas and its not good. The crust is old which they serve. just an average place.

We visited this restaurant on its opening day (had been closed from flooding) and they were just serving woodfired pizzas and apple pie - perfect combo if you ask me! The large pizza was a decent size for sharing, delicious and fresh. The apple pie was equally as good - just like mum makes at home. Our waiter was super... More

I was invited to this nice little pizzeria on the bank of the Ganges by a local friend who is a medical doctor. It was a nice afternoon in March, and nothing could beat dining alfresco style with family and friends at such a relaxed location. A word about the location is in order here. Pizzeria Vaatika Café, while sitting... More

nice place; worth chilling at .. you can see the ghat and the river languidly pass you by, while you enjoy amazingly fresh pizza, pasta and drink down lots of cold coffee.. and whatever else you take a fancy to. Very reasonably priced as well.

Well, wood oven pizzas if your heart asks for and some superbly baked apple pie with vanilla ice cream, do not miss this place. The joint is full and buzzing most of the times . Find their number and book your apple pie in advance, atleast that is what I do. Good pizzas, superb ambiance during winters, unfortunately during rains... More

We reached early. The apple pie was not ready. Settled for alternatives. The preparations were not extraordinary. The breads were fresh. We were kept busy by plenty of house flies.
