Worth the wait, worth going out of the way for. Order the wild boar, it’s memorable. Or just get whatever the people around you are ordering, which is also what we did. These guys know what they’re doing and make sure you have a meal...More

Honestly, this place ought to be closed down by sanitation authorities asap. Dirty, small, unsafe premises. Lousy food. No variety. Wine tastes like vinegar. Rude staff. Never again!

This place is a definition of a hole in a wall. Nevertheless, I would recommend it. It's hard to find, it only has about 6 tables, so you might have to wait outside as there is no room inside the restaurant. They do not have...More
