Service was quick initially but took forever to get our meals. My husband & son both ordered spaghetti & meatballs & neither liked it. Skimpy serving of pasta too. On the other hand, I loved my dinner - tortellini with mushrooms & lemon mascarpone ....More

I ate pizza and my wife eat chicken saltimbocca, both were excellent and wine recommendation from staff was excellent. 4/5 rating because there was 1 hour queue then, but it was announced right away when we arrive to restaurant. Recommended!

I greatly enjoyed my grilled goat cheese salad, and my friend's scallop risotto was also very good. Generous servings. Outdoor seating in a pedestrian seat is very nice and best suited for people watching.
