After reading the good reviews we thought it might be worth a try, but alas, we were sadly mistaken. Pasta is not difficult to prepare correctly and “pap” overcooked pasta is unforgivable. The sauce was tasteless and my wife’s pizza was shabby. Service was also not great. Will never return or recommend.
