We had a fantastic meal there. I recommend the calzone. It exceeded our expectations. The place has a very friendly atmosphere, communal. Pleasant staff. They have delicious Tropical Mojitos to drink. We'll definitely be returning.

It has a nice atmosphere with modern decor. I had the beef & gorgonzola which was average. However, the chocolate & nuts ice cream gondola with chocolate sauce was amazing. It is located in the city center and makes a convenient stop for a decent...More
