After visiting several eating places around the town, it was a joy to come across this special restaurant rather hidden away down an alleyway. Food, wine, service and ambience all excellent and by far the best I found all week.

The food here is delicious, the waiter was very polite. If you will get a plate for 2, which is 15 euros, you will leave with a big belly.
