The four of us ordered pizza and the crust was thin and crispy and delicious. Mine had simple ingredients (ham, rocket/arugula, shaved parma), but generous portions. The best pizza I've had in Italy, perhaps in Europe.

What a pitty... the menu looked good, the place was nice ... but be careful when you book à table for 10 they register it for 5 and propose you 2 separate tables explaining that it is your fault .... what else !

Has some good pizzas here shortly after opening. Very fast serving. The only small minus is the service - for some strange reason they seemed stressed even though the place was only half full. Don't expect big Italian Cuisine - just some good casual food.
