For sure the food is spectacular - authentic, made with love and skill. We feel if the prices & drinks were a little more generous this place would have lines waiting for tables. Well done on delicious authentic pizza & pasta!

We were craving a Western meal and went to this Italian place. We were definitely not disappointed! Great pizza and pasta. Only downside is that you can only order 2 pizzas for a party of 5 persons (they don't want to be "just a pizzaria").

Unfortunately, I do not know his name, but the restaurant manager and chef are both the same - the owner and his lovely wife.
