A delicious Italian restaurant. Caprese salad, with very good quality cheese, fresh and big enough to share. The Peperoni Pizza is a great choice for kids.

We were a Group of nine with wide ranges of tastes and ages, unfortunately most of us did not enjoy the meals at all. We all ordered different meals but few of us finished them.This was a place recommended to us but one of the first ones we most definitely didn't enjoy.

slow service and limited menu items the food was OK, not great but filling loud kids with a local family which made the dinner awkward and unpleasant
