Stopped for a quick bite to eat on a business stay over. Pleasant service and best Carbonara I've had the pleasure of eating.

Very average pizzas with a bad dough, however the service is very good and the atmosphere is nice. I had mussels for starter and they were very nice too.

Situated on the canal, Calzone is a nice place to eat in the summer. The food is pretty average but it's cheap and the staff are friendly. Recommended if you don't want to cook and want a quick pizza.
