Filling, beautiful presented, and perfectly fresh. Light but with lots of flavour, and choices for all kinds of diets and appetites. I've seen both vegans and meat eaters love the food served here. Plus the store is beautiful with pleasant workers.

As Italian, I appreciated so much this place. The quality of the foods was very high and the ingredients very fresh. The owner was very kind and she gave to us a taste of all the soups.
