Our hosts brought us here for a quick lunch - service prompt and food lovely - we wouldn't have found it ourselves - off the beaten track. The restaurant is very quirky with 'shabby chic' look - beautiful ceilings and reading rooms. Recommended!

Unsure between two and three: Let's say Two and half! I go there often but they are really worst than they were. A confused presentation of menu, pasta overcooked, quality not excellent. They should go back to what they were: they should be more kind,...More
