We tried several different pizzas and a few pastas. They were all delicious and well made. The prices are fair and the portions quite big. The waiter was very kind and helpful. We will definitely visit again next time we go to Riga.

It started when they didn't have beer, so we ordered just mineral water. The water wasn't cold, so I asked for som ice-cubes. The machine was broke, so we had to drink the "hot" water. The pizza we ordered, was good.
