It is one of the best places if you like meat, and if you do not mind that after this meal you need to take a long walk!

Please give this place a miss. I am sad to say I have just had the worst meal in living memory. The fillet of beef was disgusting and completely inedible. The pepper sauce was extremely poor and very sickly, it is obvious that the chef...More

Rudeness and ignorance both in eating and in behavior toward us has been really horrible. It is obvious that you do not even know what you eat because the pecorino sauce in any recipe in the world does not put in the green pepper fillet,...More

I strongly disadvice. I took pizza salami picante, my husband margherita. Pizzas looked like frozen, heated in microwave and tasted exactly the same way. As stated before - one of the worst pizzas we had during our 1.5 yrs stay in Italy!
