We were recommended this restaurant as it was within walking distance of our BnB. The staff were helpful and the service very good. We started with the misto platter and focaccio for the table. Our main meals ranged from veal to pasta which were all good

This restaurant came highly recommended and when we arrived it looked like this was going to be so. The place was buzzing with patrons and my expectations soared. I know that they are supposed to be pizza specialists but none of us ordered pizza. Perhaps this is the reason for our disappointment, I don't know. The table Greek salad was... More

Popped in to this place for a quick pizza, what a mistake that was. The abomination of a pizza I was served had so much oil it could have filled a shot glass. As for the service, I don't know what the problem was but our waiter was borderline incoherent. Shabby decor aside, quite possibly the worst pizza I've ever... More

After reading the good reviews we thought it might be worth a try, but alas, we were sadly mistaken. Pasta is not difficult to prepare correctly and “pap” overcooked pasta is unforgivable. The sauce was tasteless and my wife’s pizza was shabby. Service was also not great. Will never return or recommend.

Food still good...mozarella garlic and hwrb focacia could have been done a little crisper ... too soggy for my taste... and my pasta was done to almost to perfection. Just a little on... More
