Inside is more traditional, but again basic as in so many Italian restaurants round here. The food was served quickly but everything was far too salty for our tastes. Its the only... More

The food is okay but we had far better pizzas other places. The room is somewhat old and not to charming.

Nice restaurant! Been there twice in one week. Once for lunch with my wife and the other time with my family. 4 adults and 2 kids. Both times the food was just excellent. Well prepared and good quality. Ambience is nice as is the service. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
