The various tarts...(its Pizza people) while a bit expensive are exceptionally good. The best ingredients and a constantly changing special of the day. The Beer and Wine are fine if not ridiculously overpriced. I'd give it 5 stars if it were not for the prices...More

Try the mussels, try the Chicken Club sandwich if it's on the menu, Close your eyes and point to anything on the menu. Chances are you'll enjoy it. A small, curated wine selection rounds out inexpensive, fine food.

The food was fine. Better than Brabo. Exceptional bread as always. Service was very slow and inattentive.
