Delicious food and great service. Most of the waiters have been around for ages and are always very kind. The pizzas, pastas and desserts are wonderful. The portions are very good sized. Their chocolate mousse and tiramisu are delicious. My favorite dish there is the Panzanella pizza, and in second place the Capresse Focaccia. But the pastas are also very... More

I had a delicious pasta dish. The white sauce was fantastic and the pasta was cooked to perfection. The portion was a little small and light on ham and mushrooms otherwise I would have given top marks. The tiramisu was as good as in Italy.
