Dear reviewer, thank you for spending your time to judge our restaurant, I'm sorry to have given a completely different impression from what we are, and it is hard to believe that there has been a lack of smiles, it is not from us, we are all young, cheerful, happy and proud of our work ... the various positive reviews...

We went there for a pizza. It was big and tasty. The service was good and restaurant looked nice and stylish. They served us sparkling wine as welcome drink. Very reasonable priced. Maybe a litlle hard to find this place.

My fiancé and I ate here and the food was delicious, we arrived early and they accommodated for us. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. The dessert was average but overall I would recommend this restaurant.
