This property has now closed down and no longer operates. We did have a a meal on a few occasions here and really enjoyed the service and food. Sad to see that it no longer operates here.

It was a rainy day but the air-conditioning was on full blast. So was the conversations among the waiters. The Parigi pizza and Spildini de Pollo very average and due... More

The service was lacking and the Pizzas were good and quite big! Although I didnt try any, the cocktails at nearby tables looked good. The variety of pizzas and pastas on the menu wasnt great but the overall experience was good!
