I really do not understand the fuss about this restaurant - we had passable pizza and pasta, but were served by tacciturn and vacant staff, who forgot to bring bread and salad (despite several requests) and tried to charge us for it all the same. There were pigeons flying about under the canopy, and pecking toes under the tables, and our cutlery and table cloth was dirty.
We had such high hopes for this place after reading the other reviews but I genuinely could not recommend it to other travellers who are looking for value for money, friendly staff and genuine Italian fare. I noticed French guests having a different experience (even though my boyfriend and I are both fluent), so perhaps the owners prefer to look after their own? Whatever the reason, I would think twice about trying this place unless you're from the area or do not mind grumpy waiters in a grimy setting.
