Food is frozen and preprepared. We ordered gnocchi, these are definetly not home made. The Sauce was not fresh. Flies in the restaurant were a challenge to eat there. We will definitely not return.

Everything fits here: from the warm welcome by Franco via great starters and a very tasty pizza or pasta dish (or maybe a bistecca) and the not-to-be missed homemade Gnoccis ! Chef & staff are very friendly ! Very recommendable !
