We wanted an Italian restaurant and we didn't know where to go. We decided to choose this place because it was close of our Detla Hotel. The food was awesome. The price were not bad at all. I recommend that you try it out. We were impress of the portion that we received.
I was very disappointed. We were there at 7:30 PM on a Wednesday night and the place was pretty empty and the service was very slow. Also, we chose to be seated inside as opposed to the patio and they seemed annoyed with us for choosing that. The steak had a lot of untrimmed fat and was average at best. For all the hype, this place is nothing special
This was our second time at this restaurant. It's usually not too busy and so getting a table isn't a problem. The service was very good and the food is quite tastey. My spicy pizza was very flavourful and well made. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the food is reasonably priced.
