We have been here in previous years, and were a bit disappointed this visit. We had 3 pizzas, and a pasta dish. Portions were small, and seemed over priced for what we got. Pizzas were ok, but nothing to write home about, and pasta was...More

In October, I spent two weeks traveling through – Venice, Florence, Rome, and Tuscany. But my best Italian meal was at this restaurant – homemade pasta with authentic ingredients, fresh seafood, great pizza. What more could you ask for?

so many extra charges for random things that they don't have the courtesy of informing you before hand. It's all written somewhere in small letters in the menu. And terrible ravioli. Not even defrosted properly. Avoid this place.More
