Great place to go for lunch . Patio seating on nice day is a treat as you can watch the small planes land and take off. Full bar & pizza oven. Nice combo with pannini sandwich and soup or salad .

Good wine selection with a fairly good menu. For US standards, the portions were good but not excessive. The prawns and polenta was well seasoned but runnier than expected. Moderately spicy but not all that flavoursome.OK but not outstanding9

Food was great and the portion size was typically American...you will not starve. I very much enjoyed the margherita pizza and salad. The upside was the location, ease to navigate too and be seated very quickly. In addition the fact that you can sit outside...More
