I came to this restaurant because a friend recommended it. It turned out to be a great place. The owner (Matias) was super as well as all the staff. They served us a sample of three different pastas and they all were delicious. I would recommend it to anyone!

The Gramigna a la Salchicha is amazing. The Piadine and the Fiorentina is extraordinary. One of the best culinary experiences of my life. Looking forward to go back. Highly recommended.
