One of the best places I've been as a Restaurant, a feel like home atmosphere, quite simple as it should be. Once arrived we already felt like at a friend's home by it's owners. They way they explain each plate they have, what a wine combination you could have with the meal you chosen, from normal to great wines. The... More

I would definitely recommend this down to earth place. The decoration and interior was not very impressive, but the food was excellent. The selection of menu items was limited, but everything we ate tasted great and this is definitely a place I will be going back to.

We were there on a Saturday night and were happy we had a reservation as we saw people being turned away. The room we ate in only had 3 tables and it felt very cozy, like we were... More

I ate here this past weekend and found the food quite good. Most of the fare on the menu is typical local cuisine (with northern Italian influence) which is simple in preparation but tasty and filling. The restaurant's atmosphere is not pretentious by any means and it appears to be run by the owners, an old couple, who are quite... More
