Tommy Vs is one of the better restaurants. The ambience of the place and crowd were good. Food was generous, well prepared and tasty. Entertainment comes alive in the late evening.

Some of the best appetizers I've had. Not a huge fan of bruschetta but theirs was amazing. I tried the traditional version and the sweeter one with honey. Had Flatbread for dinner.
