The best Italian food in town but way to expensive. The price of the food and the portion of the food don't match up. The food is too high and the portion of the food is too less for the price. GO TO THE PLACE ONLY IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH MONEY AND ONLY IF YOU HAVE TO EAT LESS!

Potato smileys are nice but there's not much to screw up when they come out of a packet. lasagna was my favourite but on my last... More
