This place is close to our hotel and we read in Rick Steve's that it was good. The food was good and the wine was excellent. The service was also good and we enjoyed our meal thoroughly.

I've just had a very tasty meal here - a lovely pasta with capers, anchovies, courgette and aubergine. The experience was however soured by the bill. Firstly I had to ask to see it as the waiter was keen to just charge me without knowing...More
