I loved this place since I found the entrance in the alley.
It’s casual and friendly and most of all, it feel authentic... the atmosphere is very Italian; if you have to dine solo... you don’t feel solo anymore!!
The staff is super polite and friendly, the carpaccio was delicious and the pizza master is a delight to observe

i went to try this restaurant with a fellow businessman. The interior is rather simplistic, the people who work there are not interested in a conversation but they do their work as they are supposed to . I miss the Italian atmosphere that i hoped for, but the kitchen was ok. I think that mainly the local community are their customers, as well as companies that want a quick - not too expensive - meal. Still i think that this restaurant has potential, maybe because prices are not as cheap as one might think...

I have rarely seen such an inefficiently run restaurant! The four of us arrived early enough to find a table for dinner inside where we were able to watch this inefficiency from nearby. There were at least eight waiters, but all clueless, and the female manager was spending all her time on her smartphone without paying any attention. After 15 min. of fruitless waiting we asked to see a menu, only to be told that none were available as all had been handed out to clients. This was already telling: some people had indeed received menus but nobody bothered to take their orders. The same waiter was subsequently shown where more menus could actually be found (he obviously did not have a clue) but again nobody took our order. The only person working in this place was the man who made the pizzas (which looked and smelled great), but as the staff failed to take orders he spent a lot of time doing nothing. After waiting for over half an hour without anyone even asking if we wanted a drink, we just left. Such an inept place deserves a new management or closing down.
