  • Walked over the square but there isn't much to see there. Just a square with a bunch of streets and a lot of cars :)

  • Place is ok , they have wifi and is not too dirty, but, personel working here is very disrespectful, they look at you and treat you like they are better than you . I'm right now sitting here eating a pizza with my family and all i can say is that I will never visit Marios Pizza again, not even in USA where I come from.
  • Customer service isn't the best and they take forever to fill an order! However I must say the place is clean most times.
  • Great coffee and wifi at this location.
