Walking through the door was like stepping into a completely different world, a truly authentic Italian adventure. I had the Pollo al gorgonzola with salad and vegetables and as a cheese... More

We had few starters (and they also offered us carpaccio with Parmesan and rocket) , seafood pasta and a gorgeous tiramisu. We spent more or less 30 euro each.The staff is really friendly, nice and...

Really nice food, a little tricky to get service as they were busy with a large group but we were warned about how busy they were beforehand. Very good value and fun atmosphere.
