I was here at Upstairs during the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016. The food was okay. However, one of the staff was just irritating, wouldn't stop talking even though I was clearly showing my displeasure. All I wanted to do was to sit and have a quiet time, watching people. But he didn't let me! So, if you go there, just have... More

After 2 weeks of Idian food we fancied something a bit more European and found this pizzeria. The pizza was very nice (and I am Italian), the owner has actually lived in Italy. They also make yummy smoothies. Price-wise it was ok, not cheap, but acceptable considering the “touristy” area. Definitively worth a visit!

You can take the girl out of Ireland but you can't take the Ireland out of the girl and this girl had been craving spuds (potatoes) for almost a month. So of course I got them in an Italian restaurant! Having spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka and 1 in India, I was kinda sick of curry and needed something... More

This cafe, attached to what seems to be a very good Italian restaurant according to reviews, claims to have the best coffee in Kochi! Maybe! Certainly the most expensive. We stopped here mainly because my wife needed a toilet and they had one. We didn't look at the menu or prices when we ordered two banana shakes, but after a... More

This place has great pizza and salads! There are seats in the back on a balcony. They often have live music in the evenings. The coffee place below has very good cappucino.

This atmospheric upstairs cafe has an entirely Italian menu with antipasti, salads , pasta dishes and a range of delicious pizzas. This is such a little gem for anyone who appreciates the real Italian deal! The owner (a well travelled Keralan chef) sources some of the essential ingredients like capers from Europe and makes pizza doughs fresh daily. You won't... More

We have been there because our Lonely Planet defined ora pizza as the best in Kochi. I suppose the owner and staff are changed because I don't think anyone could call that rigid piece of bread topped with sauce a pizza.. We also asked for a Caprese salad but there were no mozzarella. The menu says that the Ice is... More

Overall a very pleasant dining experience. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was nice we had thin base pizzas and there was plenty of choice for toppings. Lovely atmosphere with live acoustic guitar music. We thought the prices were a little steep but this could be due to eating continental food in India, it is usually more... More

We ate here last night and was pleasantly surprised. There was a variety of pizzas and pastas and starters to choose from. Only thing is the place doesn't serve alcohol. The staff were attentive and nice:) the food was yummy and filling. Worth the price I would say. Would recommend people to go here if they want nice pizza.
