A great place to knock off a superb pizza in the middle of a rainy night. Hot chocolate to be proud of.

My husband the Margherita Pizza which was ok plus a Peroni beer and glass of wine. The total bill was $66. All up very overpriced and not really very Italian at all. Very disappointing as... More

Enjoyed a very nice dinner with colleagues here - waiter was great and informative about the food and wine options. Not a large menu apart from the pizza but it was still a hard choice as it all sounded good. Would be happy to go there again.

For dinner we had a mushroom pizza with truffle oil, garlic bread and a... More

Went for lunch and coffee. Great attentive staff. Bought water to table straight away. Good menu for lunch and brunch. They had run out of salmon at 1 pm for the dish I had chosen but let us know before we ordered which was great. Awesome restroom and trendy decor. Was very busy on the Sunday we went there. The...

Positive feedback for everything. We had a quick pizza margherita for lunch, which was very good, and for just 8$ thanks to the special deal on tuesday. Just in the middle of the city, the restaurant is small but modern. Friendly staff...what else?
