This is a hidden gem down a not so busy street. The salad, pizza and wine were all reasonably priced and tasted great! The white linen tablecloths added such a warm welcome touch to the already nice, clean atmosphere. The place filled up quickly after 8pm and was full within an hour! Highly recommend!

the interior is horrible but the food is sufficient but can be better. The pasta can be better, has to be a better taste. The next day we took away a pizza con porcini e mozzarella di buffalo. Then options were different.

We were a large group and booked in advanced. Agreed to a very good price beforehand. The food and drinks started arriving in abundance, so much so that we were sure there was some sort of catch waiting at the end. However we were enjoying it so much we did not care. The wine was flowing, the food delicious and... More

Enjoyed our lunch of pasta and risotto. This family-owned restaurant is simple, clean and offers a wide variety of fish dishes. The food was tasty and good.
