“Italy in Bavaria”
Review of Il Caminetto

Il Caminetto
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 August 2015

Il Caminetto is the Italian oasis in Schmiedstrasse. The food is true Italian food with the Pizza bases amongst the most gossamer thin I've eaten anywhere. the wine list is very good and the service is great. Added to this , the value for money makes it a great place to have good food on a limited budget.

We split a risotto with radicchio and gorgonzola, and it was still a generous portion for each of us. Very tasty, cooked to al dente perfection. We also split a side salad. The wine (one glass each house red and white) was drinkable if not especially robust. A pleasure to sit in the comfortable dining room and have the quiet to converse. Good for a date out.

Picked this place hoping for a good pizza while enjoying the meal outdoors. Arrived early so the place was not too busy, great outdoor seating. Got our wine and meal orders in with no issues, about halfway through the meal the waitress, who might have been working alone, disappeared......bad sign. By the time we were ready to pay the tab and leave, total abandonment.....at the end one of our group had to go inside to pay, would have been very easy to just walk away. Pizza was very good, service ended up being terrible. Will skip this place in the future.

Our waitress was very nice but overwhelmed, as she was the only one in the front of the house. The cook is most definitely NOT ITALIAN, nor does he know the first thing about Italian Cuisine. We ordered the Caprese and the Amatriciana Pasta. The tomato sauce was canned and mixed into mushy noodles...the panchetta that was supposed to be in the dish was instead cut up, cold-cut ham or spam I'm not too sure. The red onion (which is not traditionally in the dish) still had it's peel. The caprese was less that impressive and was covered in arugula and cabbage instead of basil. I felt terrible for the waitress that she had to serve this terrible, sub-quality food...but I'm not sure why it took the cook so long as everything was pre-packaged or canned. Do not eat here if you want authentic Italian food in Bavaria. It's cheap but still not worth the price they are asking.

We were very disappointed by the service received despite the tasty pasta and pizzas. We were overcharged for our wine, brought the wrong table water, and suddenly were told that the Visa machine was not available and we would need to get cash to pay our bill. The other tables all received a basket of bread, which we never received. She did offer us garlic bread but instead brought pizza bread, which we were charged for. Every other restaurant in GP was packed, the fact this one had so many free tables should have been a clue - I would skip this one and look for pizza elsewhere while in GP.
