The food was really tasty. We ate Italian pizza and pasta. But the service was so bad, that after our dinner the whole atmosphere was destroyed. Personal was unkind and indifferent to the clients. I will not be back..

Stumbled upon this quaint place on a Friday night - hungry and tired after a long day of exploring. Super friendly and efficient service. Found us a table inside so we would be comfortable despite a busy and full place. The food was fresh and...More
