We popped in for dinner one night when it was crowded but were very pleasantly surprised to be served quickly and our food was delicious. It must be a dog friendly restaurant as there was a family with their pet just inside the front door.

Had dinner here one night of our stay. Ministrone soup and pizza were yummy. Realistically priced food and wine. Comfy atmosphere. Bathroom yes. Would eat there again but we have a rule when traveling only eat at a place once.
