Very comfortable relaxed ambience, impeccable service, beautifully prepared food. We stumbled onto this place but it should be a destination restaurant.

Bread basket was delicious to start followed by lots of tasty prosecco. Food was good and met expectations as did the service with good music in the background. Only bad thing was the starter that came out was not what I ordered (ordered beef salad and got a seafood one) but was in a good mood so didn't say anything!... More

I have been passing by this restaurant for many years, as I live in the neibourhood and now I feel ashamed I have never ventured in.

After finding a near by restaurant closed, we decided to try this restaurant and i am so glad we did. The food was just fantastic. I had the Beetroot Carpaccio and minestrone soup and it was very good. My friends had some pasta and clear beetroot soup and that was good too. Overall a good experience.

We were recommended this place by a couple otherwise we would never have found it. It was a long, interesting walk from the castle where we were staying and the food made it well worth the effort.
