My wife and I visited at around 16:30 and decided to share a pizza (quarto estaceos) . They were very accommodating and split it on to 2 plates for us. The food tasted fresh and there was plenty of cheese used will definitely visit again.

One of only 2 restaurants we visited twice. We always like to sit inside and the back room is pleasant and more intimate than out on the street. The staff are nice,though at busy times may seem a little distant. Both times I had the...More
