Not a great place to eat, average food... the prices are high for the quality you get. Examples; charged us 1.50 euro for chilli flakes to be added to pasta. I'd suggest trying somewhere else.

Service was a bit disorganized, but polite nevertheless. My wife had the stuffed calamari, which she disliked. My risotto was decent, not spectacular, but above average. The pizzas looked good, though. I guess that is what we should have chosen!

The pizza was excellent. Service was top-notch. May wife had the prawns and mussels appetizer and it was a generous portion with excellent flavored sauce. The kids loved their pasta kids meal. Very kids friendly. Good solid wine menu. Highly recommend!
