The food is comparable to the best Italian restaurants I have eaten at in the US and Italy. Homemade pasta, woodfire pizza, wonderful homemade dessert. Great ambiance, food, and prices.

Great summer specials. Tuesdays and Thursdays are the best! Gasper can surely make a pizza that will satisfy you especially on Thursday special. Could be noisy as low ceiling. Nice wine selection too. Great local restaurant to patronize. Happy for Gasper and Maria, the owners.
