Oustanding food with an Italian twist!

We ate here a few times, but the same dish we had ordered a couple of days before wasn't nearly as good as the first time we had it. TIP: this place is actually 2 restaurants! Go upstairs for better food/service (and only slightly more expensive)

Do not be fooled by the promise of illimited pizza and pasta for only US$ 10 (R$ 18). Besides the rubbery pizza, service is careless, inconsistent and really slow. Although a "Wi-Fi zone" sign was displayed, no network was available - maybe to avoid inconvenient, real time negative reviews.

My wife and I made the mistake of eating at this poor restaurant and had a terrible experience. The waitress who served us, a short middle-aged woman, was beyond rude. My wife asked for ketchup and was told to go to a supermarket and buy her own! Drinks were ordered but never came and when reminded the waitress was stroppy... More

Visit the second floor for the best food. The first floor is a pizzaria.
