Spent our honeymoon here May/June 2014. Lovely hotel. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Very clean and tidy. Breakfasts were amazing every morning. Would highly recommend.
From the comments below it has improved considerably. Just been to Tsilivi this august 2011 and the food was excellent. Average price not too expensive and not cheap, very tasty quick service (we are in Greece). We went twice and enjoyed the food both times.
The Contessina Pizzeria & Spaghetteria looks lovely from the main road sitting perched on the top of a hill. We decided to give it a shot despite it being empty although we were later to learn it was empty for a reason. Service was fine with a very pleasant waiter directing us to our seat, menu is fairly extensive with a decent choice for non Italian fans. Food was below average, order of a village sausage, onion and pepper pizza appeared with the village sausage missing. We didn't complain as by the time it arrived we just wanted out. Below average food with average service.
Small portions of food and it take ages for food to come aswell and its expensive for what it isthe batchelor family
Just back from Tsilivi.
i came to tsilivi last year and ate hear a few times, before heading to the bar next door. The food was always delicious, gorgeous greek pizzas, and the service was great too, we were even given free ouzo which cant be a bad thing! will be returning next week!
This restaurant has a nice setting up some steps opposite Popeye's. Our first meal here was good, I had the Lamb with Pasta (Pastitsio) and hubby had the beef in red wine sauce (Kokkinisto). The second visit my husband ordered Moussaka which had been badly warmed up in the microwive as it was hot in parts and cold in others, I had a pizza (which as Contessina advertises as an Italian Pizzeria) I thought would be good but it was an uninspiring frozen base job. Shame the second meal marred the pleasant experience of the first. The waiters were friendly and the service was good.
The Contessina was one of the nicest and frendliest restaurants in the entire resort. We ate here 4 times in our 2 week holiday so it must'nt be bad!
This was by far the best restaurant in Tsilivi. The waiters were great. We had two children who wanted to go and sit at their own table inside the restaurant (they were ages 6 & 7!) and the waiters then went in to take their order from them and treated them just like they were grown ups! The kids absolutely loved it. The waiters there make you feel really welcome from the moment you arrive. They were by far the best. As for the food, it was wonderful! Their pizzas were to die for, we ate there about five times during out two week holiday and each time the quality of the food was great. When you arrive they give you lovely warm bread rolls which were really nice. The kids menu was also very good there. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone, and also the location is great as it's up some steps, you can watch the town below whilst you eat!
The spaghetti and pasta at this place was top class!!!
I've read the earlier comments and can't believe it. Maybe they've got a new chef, but the 2 times we ate there the food was absolutely top class and inexpensive. You have to try the Spaghetti alla Contessina or the lasagne - fantastic! The service was also very good, prompt and friendly and, according to the female members of my family, easy on the eye!!
Ate here twice during our stay and the food was great as was the service, large portions and good service. We had Spagetti al forno which was lovley and lamb pasta bake which was great. really tender lamb which melted in your mouth. give it a try.
We found the Contessina great, friendly staff and good food at a good
price, The stawberrys and cream were fantanstic, we will be going there
again next year. The lamb was fantastic.
The restaurant looked really nice and the waiters were friendly but the food was very poor and expensive for what we had. There is a lot of good restaurants in Tsilivi but this one did not come upto their standard.
We ate here as from the street it looks a nice place to eat. We had pizza which was ok and chicken which was hardly even half cooked!!!
Very good foot,
very nice people,
very nice waiter,
very nice restaurant!!!
THATS OK !!!
We ate here last year and enjoyed the food, this year however we were really disappointed. The staff were fine but I can honestly say I didn't know it was possible to cook a piece of lamb and make it so tough. The rest of our meal wasn't up to standard either. A real shame. Think they will have to improve the meals big time as there is a lot of competition in the resort and they are not up to the standards of many other palces
Good service and a very nice meal, however, we did have tastier food elsewhere. A good choice for a plesant meal.
Although the place and the waiters were very nice, we were dissappointed with the food. As usual, the typical greek food was served with french fries, and the pasta was not very good. Nevertheless, the terrace of the restaurant was very pleasant.
THIS RESTRANT WAS REALLY NICE THE PRICE IS GOO N SO IS THE FOOD DEFENTLY TRY IT
Nice food, not brilliant but well worth it.
Thought the place only did Pasta and Pizza, I'm sure there'd be a lot more people in there if they knew they did a full menu !
Nice atmosphere and high enough up above the traffic to feel more relaxed. The food and service were fine..nice Beef Stifado. Only minor complaint was that sitting on the periphery outside father in law ended up with the low level light immediately behind him which meant he could barely see his plate!
Great place to sit and watch the antics below as busses, lorries, cars and bikes all battle it out round the village square. Have visited many times and have never had any complaints about the service (it is worth remebering they work at Greek pace!!). The food is excellent and the Kleftiko is the best I have eaten in ANY Taverna in Greece full stop. A good selection of wines and a great Greek coffee make this one of our must visit places.
my family and i ate here twice during our two week stay, it was the only restaurant we made a return visit too. the food was excellent as was the service. we were a party of 8, not one person had a complaint regarding anything that we ordered, on the first visit we were given sweet on the house, what a lovely place, highly recommended
We tried the food here as the restaurant was full and looked inviting, we had garlic mushrooms for starters, they were like mushrooms in garlic slime, The main course was not much better. The red wine was ok. The worst meal we had in Tsilivi we had here!!
