Hit and Miss

Took a while to get the waiter who spoke english. Service was OK maybe a bit disorganised. Pizzas OK, bit soggy in the middle but there are cheaper and better places.

The food was ok, the service extremely (!) slow. We waited almost an hour to get our pasta, but it was a very busy day for them with a full house. wouldn't come back here, unless I was travelling on a budget.

Service was very poor - we had to wait to be seated (when seats were available) and waited more than 20 minutes to receive our drinks one seated. Dinner was OK - nothing memorable.
