Excellent service Great food. We stuffed ourselves and couldn't believe how each dish was better than the one before. So cheap, we left a hefty tip -well deserved :) Very cheerful and warm atmosphere. So many locals dining in (that's always a good sign)

Here, we got some of the tastiest pasta dishes we have ever had. My Italian is quite weak, but the host communicated tremendously in English and service was superb throughout our stay. Would recommend this place for anyone looking for a great Italian meal.
