Real Italian pizza, with thin base and great ingredients. The restaurant is great for family/friends and for any occasion. If you want to eat a really good pizza, don’t hesitate to go here! Third visit, I will return!

Pizza is mandatory, pasta is delicious. If you can't make up your mind on the wine a little wine tasting is possible. Very friendly attentive staff. Run and owned by a real Italian.
