We ate here a few times, but the same dish we had ordered a couple of days before wasn't nearly as good as the first time we had it. TIP: this place is actually 2 restaurants! Go upstairs for better food/service (and only slightly more expensive)

Visit the second floor for the best food. The first floor is a pizzaria.
