Nice place for dinner. Cosy decoration and friendly people. There is a pizza without tomato sauce, with pesto instead, try it, I loved it. It is better to make a reservation, otherwise you will wait but not for long.

The pizza was very good, and ready quick. There were so many draft beer to choose from. I wish I could have stayed longer.
