We visited in the evening and were given a choice of tables. The food was well presented and very tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient. Surroundings are pleasant with a nice ambiance.

Disappointing meal,my pizza dough and the garlic bread were very hard, i thought it was expensive for what we had. Waitress"s need to smile much more and interact more to create a welcoming atmosphere.
