Hi Folks. This is a nice place to eat and drink hidden in back of an N1 station. They, too, have their own take on pizza which was very good. Regards, OldeBear

We got there at closing time but they were nice enough to sit us and get our order in before the kitchen closed down. Yummy food and we had a wonderful waiter Antonio. Thanks to Marte and Jen as well. Perfect birthday dinner!
