Great food in a small restaurant. Service is exceptional and the food is better. A menu for all. Steak to pasta to sweetbreads. All hit the mark.

We had dinner here yesterday - ordered a steak Fiorentina (1.3kg), salad and a bottle of wine. We paid €160 for chewy meat and salad leaves. Wine cost €32 and was the only thing that was worth the money.

There are only two waiters and they delay a lot to bring the orders. The price is high for the qualiy of the food, which nevertheless is good. Very noisy place. Another problem: for reaching the restroom it is necessary to pass through the cuisine!
