The place is pretty but good is not unfortunately. I would ordered a cheese and tomato sandwich and it was really bad. I am surprised this place is #3 on trip advisor.More

If you are hankering for a decent pizza or burger this is a good option in Dali. English speaking staff are helpful. Didn't blow me away though. Be warned: the large size pizzas are enormous - really for two people.
