Peroni on tap, ideal after a hard week at the office, perfectly matched with either pizza or pasta, always great wait staff and a good wine and aperitif list, couldn’t ask for more!

Great food but even better is the exceptional service. Waitresses were super friendly and helpful with a full understanding of the menu . Highly recommend the ginger sorbet that is served with the doughnuts. Reasonably priced.
