Good food and friendly staff. Good value for money too. They also do food to go or dine in. Great atmosphere with photos of famous visitors on the wall.

Personally, I loved their crust! After a full day of sightseeing, we wanted something quick and hot. This was perfect! I really enjoyed their white pizza
