This was by far the best meal we had on our trip and probably one of the best meals I’ve had out. The fresh mozzarella just melted in your mouth. The arancini was FANTASTIC. I would’ve ordered more of it. Nice crunch on the outside and creamy risotto inside. It’s a MUST! I love a good wood-fired pizza, and this did not disappoint. On top of the excellent food and drinks, the service was top notch. (Hopefully I remember the names correctly) Kristin was our server, and we briefly spoke with Dustin, a chef. I was looking for the manager again before we left, so I could pass along our compliments in person right then. Will absolutely be back on our next visit and will recommend this to anyone looking for a 5 star dining experience.

A very good Italian restaurant with an amazing service and delicious food. The risotto is from another world, totally recommend it.

Excellent restaurant. Very tasty pizza'. A nice surprise for singles is the rooftop bar. You can eat at this bar while enjoying a magnificent and unobstructed view. I witnessed a beautiful sunset.

The restaurant is on the second floor with a nice view on the sunset if your lucky. We had some drinks and later that day diner.

The service is good and they have nice selection of wines by the glass.

We liked the carpaccio which they seared a little to give it some more flavour. The garlic knots were nice as well. For the mains we liked the chicken parmigiana and the gnocchi with meatballs. The chicken was crisp and came with a nice tomato sauce. The meatballs and gnocchi had a good taste as well. We also ordered the pizza with courgette and ricotta which was less to our taste.

Good italian with a nice vibe.
