Good place,I can come back to have the same

Not a luxurious place but I had a great time. If you seat inside in the front section you see the cook at work. Gaetano the cook is under pressure and he delivers.

They welcome you with olives and cooked pasta pastry, delicious!!! The pizza is cooked in a brick oven by the entrance, you can see it all! We also ordered pasta with mussels and shrimp perfectly done... Family friendly, they open at 6 for dinner. I recommend it!!

Had pizza quatro fromaggi and two small (á 25cl) beers for 20€. Pizza was pretty ok, nothing was wrong with it but on the other hand it had... More

Cosy restaurant, seated very close to other guests which we don't normally like, but in this place it just seemed to add to the experience. Staff very attentive - warmed breads and olives as soon as we were seated and then more breads brought soon after we ordered; wine topped up for us; quick clear-always and next course brought etc....
