Food was brilliant, especially the sea food platter, the pizza was also one of the best i've ever had. Well worth the wait to get seated.

Stayed for a quick pizza. Food is below average for a supposedly authentic trattoria. Pizza was well made but ingredients did not seem particularly fresh, particularly the mushrooms. Service is also substandard and price is average. Not recommended.

The restaurant is really small so your best chance is to visit in summer when they have extra seating outdoors. During high season you have to wait to be seated but the quality of the food will reward your patience.
