This is a must-go stop on our trip every year. Offers great pasta dishes(traditional Italian fare) and a nice wine list and reasonably priced. When busy service can lag but always friendly and accommodating. Like going there when there or 5 or 6 of us as there is always something for everyone and everybody can share. You always come out selecting a favourite dish thet you will want to try again.

We wanted to eat pizza but didn't wanted to sit on the street. The other pizza restaurants just sold pizza to take away or to sit on the street. Of course there was one other alternative but more formal. So we walked to this restaurant. In the moment we entered we were surprised: nice atmosphere, good music, clean tables very nice really. We had salad caprese, three different pizzas and a really great tiramisu. The pizza dough was thin and crusty, just great . Toppings just fresh. Sometimes a little bit slow the service, but for us it was ok, we were not in a hurry.
We would recommend it with or without children. We will come back.

Amy and I have eaten here several times and the food is quite good. The pizza is thin crust, baked in a clay oven, the pasta is like a wide fettuccine, rolled and cooked fresh. One night there was a jazz duo, muted trumpet and guitar. Romantic!

We were excited to try the fresh pasta that we read about, it was good, a bit salty, but not good enough to endure the very unfriendly service.... We figured out it was time to order when the waiter stood by our table and stared at us, not saying a word with a pen and paper in hand with a disgusted look on his face... I had questions about the menu but was too afraid to ask. Waited forever for the food and noticed that the entire staff was eating while we waited for our dinner... Oh, I forgot to mention we arrived at 5:50, they turned us away as they don't open until 6 pm. Usually that would be our clue to dine elsewhere.. Really they don't open till 7 as it seems like they make dinner for the staff at 6 pm. then they gave us a bad exchange rate... Would not go back when there are so many friendly places to dine here...

The antipasto salad was great! The waitress forgot our drinks, which was not a problem, except she was rude about it. The pizza was burnt around the edges and when we mentioed something she was terribly rude. The actual pizza would have been tasty if not blackened.
The live music made up for it, but for the price to have rude service and higher prices, go somewhere else.
