Perfect for a quick, good pizza

All I wanted was a quick pizza to take back to my room and this did the trick. Service was quick and friendly. I had a small plain (four cheese) pizza which had a nice thin, crisp crust. The sauce and overall flavors were good but the cheese didn't melt all that well. The best thing was the fresh herb bar where I was able to cut my own basil and oregano to top the pizza with. I would go back if all I wanted was something quick and simple.

Good for kids but don't go out of your way

  • No, I would not go back!

The pizzas were tops: margherita and one with a sunnyside up egg, arugula and pecorino cheese but the pasta I had, simple penne with marinara and mozzerella was mushy, not enough tomato chunks and too skimpy on the cheese. The overall effect was a feeling like why is this sauce clumpy yet wet? The decor is simply nothing and the tables are not even of the same height. If they redorated it it might be more fun to visit. For kids it's fine.
