You have to visit this place ! The menu of authentic italian food, wines and excellent personal service will make you want to come back again and again. We wished we could try the whole menu but the antipasti, pasta and main courses were outstanding.

Even though the service was a little slow, the food was very good. The wine list is limited and you should follow the owner's recommendations. At least when we visited in February there was not air conditioning. The place deserves a second visit.
