Very good quality of ingredients and preparation of both antipasto and dishes. Service is acceptable when it is crowded, but then the food helps forget any inconvenient. The decoration resembles a typical Neapolitan neighborhood which helps complete an excellent overall experience.

Great place, but make sure you have them break down you meal, because they charged a party of five 100,000 pesos more, until we decided to question the bills authenticity. They tried to give the total to us without showing the breakdown. Luckily we had...More
