A Shakshouka Pizza, where the cheese is mixed, tableside, with a tender baked egg. The Pasta E Fagioli Zuppa, a classic Italian soup with veal bacon and a mix of white and red beans. Big cheese lovers should not miss the Calzone Classico, a blend of mozzarella, cheddar, and halloumi along with spicy salami, tomatoes, served with a side of rocket leaves. End the meal with one of their dessert options, like the La Dolce Vita, made of a chocolate dome with saffron cardamom sponge cake and pistachio ricotta cream with fresh berries on the side to cut through the sweetness.
