Very disappointed. Food too spicy. Poor service. Do not expect to be served cocktail after 7pm Vrlo smo razočarani sa uslugom . Hrana je bila previše začinjena i ljuta. Nemoj te očekivati da će te biti uslužni koktelom posle 9 navečer.

We came for a relaxed mid week lunch, the server who was also the bartender was very attentive. We ordered the bread platter, a couple of beers and the gnocchi which was well prepared and seasoned. Def can recommend for lunch.

The commons is an awesome place to go with a group. You can sit outside in the courtyard and have a drink and the atmosphere is great! I think it's a little overpriced for what you get, but the food is good nonetheless.
