Tricky to find and down narrow lanes, the restaurant is certainly appealing upon arrival. However, arriving early for a dinner booking we were ignored for nearly half an hour.

Every dish they served was perfect...Silvia the owner, was very kind with us! Special menu for the children and at the end the price was not so expensive for a Michelin starred restaurant.
