Respond to Review of Sfizy Veg
by beer and veg
Review: Rixdorf and NK in general is becoming a vegan hotspot! I was beyond excited when I saw Sfizy's sign: Vegetarian Italian Cooking. Everything is vegan and reasonably priced. I tried the Bacon Cheezy Burger and was pleased, but not thrilled. The burger was fine, sauce and tomato good, but the lettuce was well past peak. The potato chunks were excellent though. The second trip was far more rewarding. A "Giro Pizza Classico" for two was actually enough for two people and was delicious. The crust was fairly chewy, vegan cheese was cheesy, the toppings were excellent. The sauce was lacking, as were the herbs. I will forgive that, but perhaps a seasonings/condiments tray somewhere would be a nice touch. I have to admit, however, that I was a little put off by the service. The pizza was put down on the table with few words and no table ware. I sat for a full five minutes or so before I realised that I must get my own steak knife to hack at the pizza, and then just make a mess on the table with no plate. This is fine, but not how I am used to eating. The ambiance in general was cozy, but not actually comfy. The chairs were too big for the tables and the tables were far too close together. As much as I wanted to read several of the books in the bookshelf behind me, I would rather have had the extra leg room. A stereo behind my head made conversation very difficult. The lights in the cooler chest of drinks were bright and made the place look like a spaetkauf. Hey, I'm picky, but hopefully someone out there is listening. One other thing: DESSERT. An Italian restaurant with NO DESSERT? pff! I can't always go to Vux, it closes at 7, so please add some desserts (like Tiramisu, mousse, whatever!) Even with the negatives, I look forward to many return visits to Sfizy.
