The pizza wasn't late, friendly staff. However, the pizza wasn't that good. It was recommended by a friend but I personally didn't like it that much. The pizza was a bit crusty, it was fine though but I've had better.

Went for the 3rd time, delicious food. restaurant is somehow small, so you may end up waiting for long or sitting in the street [which is not preferred in winter]. Pizzas are great as well as Burgers and Pasta.

Cozy and relaxing place for a light dinner, really enjoyed the thin Italian salami pizza and also I recommend the pasta. But delay in service can be a weakness point.

Cozy, welcoming, beautiful coffee shop and restaurant, that roasts its own coffee beans and makes the best coffees ever, serves delicious milkshakes, bakes its pizzas in an Italian stove oven, offers generous servings of pasta dishes, and serves a super tasty homemade banana cake and tantalizing chocolate-banana pancakes - all this in a gorgeous backyard garden-terrace intimate atmosphere where you will really feel at home. (Take away and delivery also available).
