It's a very modest family friendly restaurant. We were in love about the Smoked Trout Risotto. Also loved the Villa Donna Lasagna. The restaurant is small, you should make a reservation in advance just in case... Um restaurante modesto e aconchegante. Amamos o Risotto de Truta Defumada e tambem a Lasagna Villa Donna.
