Overpriced for what you get. Staff slow to take orders.Very poor bar service and tacky atmosphere. Only a good place for locals as the staff and management were too occupied with socialising with frequent diners. Certainly would not recommend this establishment.

We had here a wonderful pizza capricciosa: really reminds pizzas in Italy! We also had a pizza with sea food and penne all'amatriciana, all excellent! And another thing: we brought our wine and they did not charge for corkage!
