Good steak, good service. Not the cheapest but recommended if you want good quality food. Upstairs interior nothing special but nice enough.

I am ashamed of being Italian if that is supposed to be Italian food! Spring rolls, cesar salad, Irish steak ....and bad tiramisù and tortellini! It is not an Italian restaurant but an average international one!

My son and I went here for dinner. Two starters for sharing (garlick bread with cheese and fresh sliced cured meat) very nice! Good pizza! Verry friendly staff! Visit this restaurant for good Italian food!
