We were looking for somewhere to have a late lunch, with everywhere about to close we found this place. The tables in the street were in the shade and had a pleasant breeze. The Pizza and beers were excellent.

I was waiting for food 55 minutes even if it was not busy evening. The food is good but service poor.
