We just stop here for a coffe and we discover a beatiful place to stay, where the staff can make incredible espresso and cappuccino "Italian style" !!! We also met the Manager, a beatiful woman, that show us everything about the restaurant and future project inside it!

We had my mothers birthday dinner here and were very impressed. The staff were attentive, the piano player created a gorgeous ambience, and the food was exquisite. Try the Duo Of Pork - fabulous dish. Lots of other restaurants get the talk but this was cheaper, more luxurious and better in food quality than those others. A definite must try!
