Excellent food we tried almost everything on the menu, from pizza to the delicious fillet steak which is cooked to perfection. Thanks to Doria and the fantastic staff always with a smile. See you soon

Went for Sunday Lunch with some friends, we had to ask for the menus ourselves and no waiter has come to offer a drink while waiting for the others to join us. Our table was booked for 12:30 but had to wait for our food until 14:30. When the food finally arrived, one of us had ordered 400g meat...but funnily... More

I visited this restaurant on a generally busy day as it was during the Carnival festivities but that is no excuse for poor service. The food we chose was simple and consisted of pizzas and pasta. The food arrived separately which is a definite no no in my opinion. The staff were not attentive as there were way too many... More
