This is the first time I have been to an Italian restaurant outside of Italy, which felt like I was back in Italy! My Italian friend recommended this place & for an Italian to recommend an Italian I thought it must be good...it wasn't, it was fantastic! Authentic flavours & a lovely atmosphere. We started with the antipasta, followed by... More

The chef makes amazing pizza! We were two girls travelling and the host at the restaurant really caught our attention by complimenting us and flirting a bit! The pizza he recommended turned out to be one of the best I ve ever eaten. The service is very warm and makes you feel at home!

Whether it's with friends or family, this is a perfect venue for true Italian cuisine served by staff who love what they do. It has all the atmosphere of a family run business. And, beside the usual comparisons of tasty food and good wine, it has the one ingredient that can't just be placed on the menu. This restaurant was... More

Beautiful traditional Italian food. We had a pizza and a bruschetta special, both of which were delicious. Pizza was the best Iv ever had. Tiramisu was a delicious traditionally made tiramisu. Such a treat! Service was great, food was fast. Vibes were traditional/rustic. Just lovely.

Stopped in at this gem instead of a different place we were heading too due to the friendly owner enticing us with the lasagne special. Food was unreal, the house wine was delicious and the quaint surroundings were greatly enhanced by the engrossingly pleasant ambience.

Thank you Antonio for the great service and always finding me a table despite being last minute or weekend. This place is always busy especially during weekend as the pizza is amazingly good. Authentic, quality ingredients, good location, good prices. I wish I could have pizza almost everyday. It was initially recommended by my friend from Rome as she claims... More

I stumbled across this restaurant by accident, but I am so glad I did! The place itself is small and rustic, and has the feel of a real family run Italian trattoria. And while the ambience is fantastic, the food is even better!!! Finally *real* Italian food in the city! I cannot recommend this place (and its pizzas) highly enough!

Thank Ginifred
