I found the ambiance sophisticated and casual, the perfect mix for a business lunch or coffee.

We were served items from the menu and in my opinion, the Pesto Pizza and Bruschetta is really worth trying. Authentic Italian flavors and strong aromatic coffee made the food the highlight of the evening.
