“Good food, but terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The food was actually pretty good here, but the Service was terrible - the staff was actually rude, and couldn't care less if we were there or not. Again, food was good, but portions were small. Too bad, the place has potential. Paid cash and left. There are literally hundreds of other places within walking distance.

“Authentic and friendly Italian with passion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a fantastic restaurant. The ambience and food were outstanding. It reminded me of the family-run restaurants that we visited in Italy. A great find!! Very few tourists, even though we fit into that category.

“Delicious, fresh food, made with love”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I walked to this little Italian restaurant from our hotel on Union Square. What a delightful find. We shared a special grilled peach salad with fresh mozzarella, arugula, and addiction. Then I had the most unusual Filipino linguine ever. Fresh linguine and a mix of seafood was served inside a fresh baked topper of baked bread (kind of like pot pie crust, but made with fresh pizza-like dough). It sounds odd, but once you opened up the top, you could sop up the broth with the delicious bread. My husband's classic pepperoni pizza was also quite good-probably a good idea to share one with two people as it was quite ample.

“Excellent find, and not just for the pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

I found this lovely small family restaurant through TripAdvisor a few months ago and have been a regular diner ever since. The pizzas are amazing, especially Caprese. The pastas are also great. Tonight I enjoyed a special shell pasta stuffed with buffalo mozzarella, fennel and sausage and baked.. Wow! This place is small, family run and always friendly. Can't go wrong!

“Fab food, family feel, friendly too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

This was our 1st proper meal on holiday, after arriving long-haul.
We initially wondered in the back entrance, whilst strolling down an alleyway which offered a number of other restaurants.
I'm so glad they had space for us- soon after it was full and buzzing.
The pizza was delicious, the dough nice and elastic, the toppings fresh and invigorating. My diavola had oceans of fresh rocket and lovely spicy sausage, which allowed me to keep going through the jet-lag.
Looking at the excellent reviews they get, I say we were in total agreement-eat there!
