Because it had good reviews, we went there for dinner. We noticed that most of the customers were locals. When we had our orders of pizza, chicken and pasta, we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the price was very reasonable. The staff...More

Recommended by our hotel, we visited this restaurant twice during our week stay. The food and service was outstanding! We enjoyed both our visits and even got to know the staff a bit. Locals visit this restaurant so you know it is good food!
