Italian family-style cuisine is what limited information we have been able to find out about this new restaurant, whose main concept is about authentic Neapolitan pizza, very similar to the 800 Degrees Pizza in the States.

They are set to open early in the morning to serve Italian coffee and at night they will serve a variety of craft beers.
