I had a shard on my pizza. Ok, this can happen. BUT: The boss didn't show up, until we wanted to pay and explicitly asked for him. And he only said, that he was busy before.

I ordered a light pizza (280 calories) and it was great! The mozzarella was so soft ! We were a big group and at the end of the meal, the staff offered us a free tequila shot! I will return there!

I've been using this pizzeria for several years and was actually reasonably satisfied with it in previous years. However, several incidents in recent months have forced me to find a new pizzeria. Firstly, if you're eating in, be prepared to wait, as it can take...More
