Very good location for larger group dinners in the centre of the city. Food is generally good, but waiting time can be long with larger group.

Food is good but expensive for what it is. The place itself is nice but plastic chairs aren't impressive. Service is great though.

Went with a large group of people and the restaurant was very accommodating and sat us immediately. Food was good (all had pizzas), although they gave us someone else's appetizers (which we refused to pay for). Nice atmosphere, and would come again.

We waited to be seated so long we just sat at a table. Took another 20min for someone to take our order. Food was not that good. Orders were lost and some things we ordered were never served. Overall: Wont go back there anytime soon
