Great pizza and pasta

Had a great lunch! The arugula and beet salad was delicious. The pizza funghi was also amazing and I am craving it as I write this review. Hope to visit again.

Had dinner with friends. We were waiting for late comers but at no point were we rushed by the waiters. Basic menu, good quality food and reasonable prices. Wine selection is decent as well.
