  • Food was OK but it could be better. Servis was very good.
  • Worst service in a long time - we never got our pizza. After over half an hour of waiting and watching people (who had arrived after us) getting theirs we found out ours had not even been started.... we left without waiting even longer
  • Large and good pizzas. Service was so so: quite slow and brought the wrong beer.

  • Is very good and the waiters are efficient and fast. In 2 we spent less than 20 euros, with pizza, a steak that was out of this world, water, wine and coffee.
