On a rainy day it was amazing to enter this beautiful restaurant. The restaurant was in fact closed, but we were, due to the rainy day, welcomed. Thank you so much for this hospitality to Giuseppe and Laura.

We met Giuseppe when looking for M.A.T.E.S because of the good reviews. He opened for lunch just for us. He then served wonderful food. Altogether a marvellous experience.
