I found this restaurant basically because it was close to our hotel. I love Italian food. I have to admit that my choice is usually limited to Olive Garden. I wish this place was close to our home; We would be there at least weekly!...More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night and managed to get in without a reservation around 6:30. Altogether the food was great and quick, and the menu had many options. The only negative was that the staff was very slow at the end of...More

To be fair, we hadnt booked and it was a Friday night, however our table was right beside the kitchen, toilet and bar. The restaurant was not relaxing, staff were rushing around, dropping cutlery and slamming plates and glasses around. Staff were not very polite...More
