Great food! My sister and had risotto and I had a pizza. Both were excellent, the house wine went well with both dishes and the service was prompt and attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant

Went here based on recommendation from TripAdvisor. Delicious thin crust pizza. Bright and well made risotto ai limone and wonderful veal taglia (over rocket and with Parmagian cheese). Solid wine list to boot.
