The food was excellent and served in a timely fashion, the portions were filling and packed a flavorful punch. Hospitality is off the charts as well. I highly advise trying the signature soup as well as the delicious assortment of breads.

I love how the owner treats his guests, most of the time he is around checking on each table himself and chat with guests to make sure everything is alright. The restaurant has two locations, one a semi formal dining at the first floor of the... More
