Impossible to find decent Italian food in this area. Was hoping on the recommendation of a friend. I did not order the pizza which looked pretty good. The concept is sharing dishes. The apps were ok, grilled octopus and meatballs, but not memorable. Based on...More

There is a very convenient parking lot (with meters) right behind the restaurant. We made reservations for a Sunday afternoon but these were not necessary. We enjoyed a pizza (too big for one person, too little for two people to share as their only food)...More
