Regarding service, we had to wait way too long to just get our order taken!!! So long we were too hungry/mad to be any happy about service! The food is good, would recommed you eat to go... More

Good place for inexpensive, authentic, Italian food. Convenient location, centrally in Urdesa, parking available in the backyard. Nice atmosphere, I personally like the red/with table cloths, and the times I have been, the Italian owner was there to welcome his guests.

We went a bit early to eat a pizza so we had to wait quite a lot. I appreciate they told us we had to wait as in other places they would cook the pizza with a cold oven, resulting in a bad cooked pizza. The service was very attentive and at the end they offered a drink to compensate... More

Good for special occasions with the family, or maybe for a business meeting. Authentic Italian food, with a good wine selection. Excellent service, nice restaurant (although not in such a good city area).

This is a family restaurant, and it's full most of the time. For families that want cheap Italian food for large crowds, it works perfect. But don't expect the best if you are looking for fine Italian cuisine for yourself or your couple. If you are not that exquisite, or not demanding quality for the connoisseur, you will be satisfied.... More
