The pizza was good although it had little tomatoe sauce, but the service was terrible. We called the waiter a couple of times and he did not come. He barley new the menu and was not happy to serve us. It did not reach my expectancy.

Italian style pizza (thin crust, once size only). Great in every way. The lasagna is small but it's great

There's a lot of cheese but the crust is nice. And the bruschetta is great! Is it as good as real italian? Of course not! But still a good place to stop since you're clearly not in italy. There's really no personal size option so I wouldn't recommend it to solo travelers. Service was great for us.

I've been here multiple times with friends, and it's become our go-to dinner choice. Be sure to get there early, as this place is always packed! So many pizza options, authentic Italian pastas and appetizers (if you can't find your favorite dish, ask the server and they sometimes make off-the-menu traditional dishes), and a lively atmosphere. The service is Ecuadorian... More

Not sure about the many reviews that criticize the service, but our experience was very positive. We were never ignored and our drinks and food came out promptly and as requested. The hostess kept...
