Great food. Although everyone else in our party ordered "brunch" egg dishes. I had the lasagna the best I have ever had.

Perhaps my expectations were too much based on other reviews. I ordered a pizza which was unquestionably one of the worst pizzas I have ever had, The espresso gelato was awful.More

Enjoyed our dinner although it lacks ambience for an Italian style restaurant unless you prefer minimalistic modern style. Food and service very good.
