Unpretentious place, long opening hours, good for stopping any time and having a tasty pizza. Reasonably priced, good wine by the glass, however dessert is passable.

The worst rip off restaurant in Italy. When we ordered veal we were given chicken. The pizza didn't arrive. The bill included meals that weren't delivered. Do not go there

Despite the huge sign saying there was a breakfast buffet we turned up at 730 and then walked passed at 1030 to see it was still shut. Don't be fooled by the advertisement. (Photo taken later)
