You don't usually find places where the staff knows how to pair wines. We went out for a girl evening and I was blown away by their pizza and Wines. Must try if you want authentic Italian food 🥘..

Nice Italian-style restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Service and Pizza was great. They offer diverse meat, pasta and pizza dishes and have a nice wine card. We went there twice during our stay.
