Had the best steak ever here. Cooked perfectly and so tender. Only problem is that there was actually too much food so we took it home in a doggy bag and had steak baguettes for lunch the next day. Restaurant unassuming in appearance but service with a smule and wonderful food.

We usually visit this wonderful restaurant for evening meals and to celebrate special occasions however we were fortunate enough to sample a lunch menu the other day and it was fantastic and extremely economical. The food is superb and always served with a smile.

Our host made reservations for us, and a good thing, too, as this was obviously where the locals (including a fairly large group of British expats) ate on a regular basis. The food and service were excellent, though we did have to resort to pantomime... More

A gargantuan spread of 8 or 9 courses of homecooked pasta and freshly roasted meats with all the usual trimmings of wild boar and truffles. A great communal meal.
