Recommended by our guides from the raft trip, this was a fun, local pizza joint. Very different toppings available on the pizzas, try something new.

Good pasta, good wine, good pizza and really cute kitties that come by your table. When you stay at the hotel you get a delicious and filling complimentary breakfast "typical or traditional" per person.
