I went there with different Italian friends and we've always been really impressed by the quality of pizza there! You have almost the impression of being in Italy, except for the prices which are a little bit too high...

Visited a couple of times over the last 2 month or so. The ambience is quiet nice and deserves a very good to excellent rating. Nevertheless the food is a hit or miss. If you charge 24 Euros for a rather simple fish dish you would expect constant quality as well as preparation above average. Unfortunately this is not always... More

As in the title.. I'm Italian and I've eat something different from what I call Italian taste.. Anyway not bad.. But a lot overrated. There's something cuter in Essen. So 2* just to adjust the rating. Cheers

Went there with Kids on Mothers Day. Although some claim it is a bit loud, it makes you feel comfortable when with Kids, as noone (apart from nice waitres) pays Attention to them. Good Food, reasonable prices (but not very cheap), what else does one Need. Clear recommendation
