What we ordered was enough for 2 people and even we could have spared the bruscetta. About the food, the tomatoes used in the bruscetta were cherry tomatoes cut in half, with exquisite... More

Had dinner with a family of five and friends.. Food was amazing, service was excellent and the relaxed ambience made the overall experience very enjoyable. Doesn't seem like much from the street front, but this look is deceiving. Highly recommended and will return

Went last week and really enjoyed the experience. We arrived quite late, maybe an hour before kitchen closing time. Yet the atmosphere was chill and there were two other groups enjoying their meals and drinks. I had an allergy and my nose was runny as hell so our waiter brought me some tissues. I thought that was attentive of him... More

This is a place you would visit assuming it's an ordinary Italian restaurant only to be surprised that it's one of a kind. Super tasty menu in a casual simple setup. With many signature plates and a great pizza. Highly recommended

Excellent wood pizza(s). Children friendly. Romance friendly too (2 lovely couples were "tete a tete") and excellent taste of wine! Ask for Reem! She took good care of us (so did all other members)!
