We had pasta and beef (filet steak with Gorgonzola spaghetti) and two other pasta dishes. They were all very good, as was the juice. The restaurant is cosy, with walls full of messages scribbled by guests - leave your own. One of the owners was there and the service was good too.

I wanted to eat steak and when I arrived I had to choose between Brazilian steaks (with sauce) or Argentinian steaks (without sauce). I went for the Brazilian one and it was sumptuous ! I will try the Argentinian steaks tomorrow !

At this restaurant you can eat a good Italian food for a reasonable price and good service. We definitely want to go back there when we have a chance.

This restaurant was ranked as the best in trip-advisor, so we were very curious. Atmosphere was unbelievable cause just outside the restaurant a group of locals was singing creating a big buzz. Service was nice and friendly. The food was NOT GOOD! I heard that the owner died 3 years ago. Not anymore was it used to be! I would... More

We saw that this place was rated 2nd on Trip Advisor so we stopped in and enjoyed some excellent food. Wonderful ownership. Managers and servers were very friendly and lively. I tried the shrimp in pinapple dish that's featured in the photo and it was a lovely, unique thing to eat.
