Slow kitchen, smartass waiter asking for tip. Pizza was OK, average lasagna where they had been saving in spices.

We stopped here for lunch and it's such a great location, you can spend ages people watching! The mixed meat platter was delicious and just the right size for lunch, topped off with a beer. Service was quick and friendly, found nothing to complain about
