    It is located in the beautiful Old Village.
    So what you expect is a very good italian restaurant.
    Unfortunately you will be badly disappointed.
    I'm italian and for this reason I can understand very well what is good and what is bad when I'm eating italian food.
    I was there with my girlfriend. We first ordered a garlic bread as a starter. It came as a very big portion (but what kind of bread was it I really don't know!). It tasted bad, also because there was just a very little bit of olive oil and there was no odour of garlic.
    Well, we then ordered a pizza as the main course.
    It came again as a very big portion. But it was such a horrible pizza (tasted awful) that we both left it despite we were starving at the time. It looked like they bought a ready bread for pizza and just warmed it. Crap pizza!!!
    They took back our pizzas but didn't ask the reason we left our pizza. Just smiled and took our money.
    This is a restaurant that try to make happy with its big portions of food and it's targeted to people who are not italians. Believe me, the quality of food is really very bad. Their name is the only thing they really have italian. Shameful for a restaurant.
