No-one could guess that behind the dusty door on Via d'Ossuna is a truly authentic Sicilian restaurant. No glitz, no pretence, just wholesome food made as it should be made. Gluten free was no problem. The service was fine and the atmosphere charming. Well worth...More

We've discovered this restaurant because the one we were looking for was closed. With a rate of 4,5 we were waiting for more. Still the ratio quality price is ok. But it stays average, nothing more.

First of all, I'm not the easiest to please when it comes to food (super picky eater) and their menu was a pretty difficult for me. At the end they gave me something off the menu and it was good. Their local white wine with...More
