This restaurant has a very particular ambience. Low lights with candles on the table. The waiters are very professional and kind. We have eaten a very good italian pizza and drink a very good ungarian beer. The cost ? Very cheap.

Decent food but a a 45 minute wait for a 2 pizzas and a salad is too long. It wasn't even busy and upon leaving it was clear the cook was taking many smoke breaks. Wouldn't go back.

Great, but noisy location. Good but a little bit forced ambiance, waiters are friendly, but they speak way too loud and not too appropriate when they do nothing - next to the tables. My pasta was very good, it was Tagliatelle with caper, chicken and...More
