Nice restaurant with tasty pizza and other things on the menu, too. Bistecca is fantastic, and they have Warsteiner beer to help you with your dinner

I don't like this Restaurant. "Pizza Margherita" was dry, the "Frito misto" full of oil. We have not ordered cakes. The room is very noisy... I'm sorry but we'll don't coming back in this place. Bart's Family.
