We ordered a seafood pizza package and a seafood pasta. Food portion is great and the food served is superb. Highly recommended especially on their pizza.

Most likely the best pasta I had in a long time, the place is popular with locals as well as tourists. The meals are fairly priced, the staff is very friendly.
