I've subsequently seen some mixed reviews but we had a great experience, the staff were great, and willing to stop by for a laugh (there are caricatures of each staff member which are pretty funny). I recommend it, although I do rate it... More

Alas that has changed and instead there is the standard touristy type menu in different languages. We had the fried aubergine balls as a starter which were quite nice but my husbands gnocchi was not fresh or well cooked... More

Wonderful simple clean flavors, great service and a lovely ambiance. A really nice little find that we stumbled upon. The octopus salad was superb.
