I love this little noisy place, with great food and a menu that is refreshed often. Great atmosphere and food. Going there is one of my summer pleasures. Outside seating is lovely.

There is always a long queue for 'the best pizza in town' and it's totally not worth it. You pay a lot for soggy, tasteless pizza. Better making your own at home or heading elsewhere. The service is friendly though and it's always hopping if...More
