Wanted to try their pasta, after reading reviews here but only serves after 11am. I was there at 10.15 am. Ordered the Italian wrap with eggs and sausages. Tasty and inexpensive but the dough a little salty. Enjoyed the breakfast. 😊

Quick and friendly service, cozy and pleasant place to eat in. I tried the Via Vegetali piada and had some white chocolate profiteroles for dessert. The food was absolutely delicious and quite affordable as well. Great place, would definitely go again!
