This is a tiny little spot right on the road, but they still create a nice ambience. Their pizza was one of the best I've ever eaten. Their service was great. I saw a little play area four children inside the restaurant.

Some of the best pizza we have ever had anywhere! Wood fired, thin crust and great sauce.. that is what makes a wonderful pizza. Prices are very reasonable and the service is very friendly. We highly recommend this spot!

I chose the Chicken Neapolitano and my wife chose the Fettuccine with a chicken and cream sauce. Both were well presented and very delicious. Nice thing was the owner topped up my banana shake when it was empty as he had some left when he was making it. He also gave me some extra garlic bread to mop up the... More

This restaurant is quite near to the Esplendor where we are staying. Had the Daniel pizza which was sublime. Will make sure we go back before we leave as we really enjoyed it there.

Incredible Pizza, so good in fact that if you don't finish you will enjoy it just as much days later. You can tell that a real chef has created any of their dishes on the menu, as they are all incredibly tasty and delicious. The prices are reasonable. The relaxing décor is soothing and comfortable. It is located slightly father... More
