If there is a place where you want to chill out and enjoy some great trout, this is the place to be. Friends recommended this place, and boy, we loved it. The food is amazing, maybe with a bit of an improvement in service, it would be still better.

The pizzas they make aren't boilerplate recipe - there is definitely some kind of personal touch in cooking them. Classic hand-tossed, wood oven pizza with smoky fragrance - it's not only delicious but memorable too.
