This is basically a butchers shop where you choose from the meats on display in the chiller and have it cooked and served outside at a table, together with salads, crudo vegetables and chips etc. nice for a change and inexpensive.

We were there for quick lunch prior to a business meeting. We ordered 2 main courses and asked for one starter. The waitress informed us that the starter was not available - which can happen. 3 other customers arrived 20+ minutes later and were allocated a table next us. They ordered the same main course as we did. 5 minutes... More

Selected from the counter, the meat was grilled, flavorful and delicious, and a good value. The pollo lunch special was a full chicken, juicy and tender, served with fried potatoes. Including a mixed salad for two, plus bottled water and coperto came to 22 euros, enough delicious food to fill us and have us return!

Sitting al-fresco next to the 1914 water pump, I was served a delightful meal, and beverages by a pleasant waitress who had a sense of humour. The menu is varied, and is fresh food. I recommend this small restaurant for solo travellers and couples who have a travel budget to consider. Clean toilet facilities are inside the restaurant.

We would never have realised what it was without the recommendation. It looks just like a butcher's shop from the outside. Inside, you choose your meat; many different types of meat rolled eg bacon around veal. They then cook it in their special rotisserie style. At our table we enjoyed bruchetta on the house, the chosen meals, salad, olives, delicious... More
