We had dinner here , most of us not really hungry , however despite that managed to put away a few very nice pizzas! So good to be in an Italian restaurant with Italian staff who really care about the food and service.

Really enjoyed sitting outside and taking in the views while eating our dinner. We had the garlic ciabatta, spaghetti marinara and mushroom risotto. All delicious!

We came for breakfast, coffee was below average. The staff were nice but food was very bad. We ordered pancakes, they were inedible and Mcdonalds can do better. We also had eggs florantine, they were edible but not good. Orange juice was a highlight.

Why did your floor manager(senior lady) ask customers to clean up table themselves as I experienced last week? Is that kind of rule of this restaurant?
