Nice atmosphere. Food was simple but good. Service was excellent. Waiter was so friendly. They do shots with you at end of meal. Not sure how they were still standing at end of evening but they loved it.

Really good food, not so typical Italian as not all ingredient authentically Italian - but they certainly know how to prepare food so a very good take on Italian - excellent location for sitting during the day or for dinner with friends
