Please don’t visit this awful place. Overhyped by some YouTubers, but got to know the reality when we visited it. The pizza was so bad that we couldn’t even finish it. I was feeling like vomit. The prices are unnecessarily high. I would never recommend...this place to anyone. I paid 1000bucks for this waste. It was literally. Worst experience.More

Very Unhygienic place Tasteless pizza(I ordered the special pizza which became a nightmare) The pizza base was very bad. The apple pie was so annoying that I felt like vomiting after eating it.I had to eat digene tablets after eating pizza & apple pie. There...is no view from the front.Some relic blocks the view. Overhyped place by YouTubers & nothing else.Sab paid promotions hain otherwise who will suggest for visiting this kinda dirty place to eat with lots of flies hovering over you. The kitchen was dirty too. Not recommended at all.More

Awful. Dirty restaurant, outside area completely filled with flies, absolutely no view (on the worst bit of the river for a view by chance, and there is a display blocking what you can see), pizza was rubbish - cheese and tomato tasted bad, though the...base was quite good to be fair. There was even dirt on the inside of the seasoning jars so they’ve obviously been left outside collecting dirt for a long time since being cleaned. Service was ok. I did consider just walking out but I needed some food and knew it would be a while until I had a chance to eat again. On the front of the menu it says ‘First Pizzeria in India’ - more like worst pizzeria in IndiaMore

The Apple Pie with ice cream is absolutely delicious here. One must try this cafe for the same on their Varanasi visit. Its on Assi Ghat and google map guides you well. Locals here also do help locate the cafe. It's just on the ghat...up stairs from where the Ganga aarti happens in the evening.More

I'm italian and I suffer when I see something like that recognized as "pizza". I don't understand other positive review, maybe I was unlucky but the "pizza" was honestly not good. Especially poor raw materials ad if you have cheap tomato and cheap mozzarella you...cannot have good pizza.More

We walked two kms to reach the pizzeria which was highly recommended. The first look is disappointing - the hand wash area is filthy - broken door pan strewn wall. The menu is in tatters. When spoke to the owner's son the excuse was that...the area gets flooded. Wouldn't tiles be easier to wash tiles than a plastered wall? Looking at the crowd I am sure the food will be goodMore

I didn't think I'd be able to sit so close to the Ganges and feel so safe that I was eating clean, fresh food. Some of the best pizza I've eaten anywhere. The freshly made hummus with pita bread was second-to-none and totally worth the...short wait. The staff were always really friendly and helpful and all of the goood delicious.More

Great open air place. Good pizzas, good taste. Fare is vegetarian. Ambiance is awesome. The pizzas are handmade and takes time to prepare.

Excellent spot for pizza, pasta and desserts. We enjoyed the apple pie with ice cream very much. Both the veg pizzas ordered were delicious. The location of cafe overlooking Assi Ghat and Gangaji with Varanasi ghats views is mind blowing. Perfect place to chill out...with family and friends in the evening.More

The place is good for the views of the Ganges. Pricey for what is offered. We liked the food but it was average. Limited menu. Great for a one-time visit for stunning views with European food.
