Great atmosphere but food is just ok. Pizza was watery and floppy, but we liked the focaccia (made like a pizza but without sauce. Service was really really slow, so get some drinks and plan to hang out for a while.

I personally tried the Diavola Pizza, but even pasta with fish, mussels and other pizzas looked lovely! Very nice environment, and tasteful food. Prices absolutely right.

The band was amazing and the food the kitchen was putting out looked amazing! We will definately go back for dinner, drinks and good... More

We loved the service here. Wish they had vegan pizza but we ordered food without the cheese anyway. Everyone loved their food and the server was very nice. Food was prompt and a great atmosphere overall.
