We ate their at lunchtime. Unfortunately, they do not fire up the pizza oven for lunch. The waiter, however, found us a sample of some wonderful pizza that they had made for something else but was very good. We had seafood and it was fresh and delicious.

I have to say, I don't see many great reviews here, but I loved it! The antipasto (self serve) had so many great things to eat from seafood to local cheese. The homemade pasta was really, really good, both with seafood and with a simple sauce. To top it all off, even though I am not a dessert person, they... More
