If you go here expecting fancy food and a romantic evening you will be disappointed. If you go ready to eat local pub food and enjoy the show then you will enjoy it here! I don't eat beef or pork, but I can always find...More

The name of the restaurant describes the interior and the atmosphere. The food is good, but what makes the experience a memorable one is the staff and the show they offer along with the digestif liquor (some very sweet stuff that can be burnt). We...More

Fabulous little restaurant in quiet location, just off Via Torino. Amazing amount of cow bells hanging from the ceiling and walls covered in copper pans and old photos-, the décor has been done with love. Our dinner was very good, Gnocchi with Ragu, meatballs and...More

The food tastes great, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and the decore is quirky and fun. It was packed with locals, which is always a good sign. The portions we're hearty, and the plates well prepared. There's an agricultural / cow theme to the...More

We went there because on the recommendation from the hotel. I would probably not visit a place like this otherwise. The food was quite strong: meat, cheese. And lots of it. I couldn’t eat the whole fondue meal. It was fun watching the locals.

We went to this restaurant after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately the food was terrible. The beef tartare was terrible, we had snails in butter and they were sweet! The bread was stale and the steak was the worst we have ever eaten! We...More

This authentic place is focusing on what they know the best - the meat. Charcuterie, grilled meats, tartars and many more. Dishes were delicious and generous accompanied by a great variety of local wines. The staff is welcoming and professionel.

We had lunch here as a small family of 3 and utterly enjoyed it. Our mouths watered profusely over the beef tartare, gnocchi al ragu', sliced meats, cheeses, mixed grill (never seen my hubby devouring grilled red salad and courgettes before!). The home made tiramisu'...More
