Had a great time there! Exceptional quality food. I liked the short menu and we loved every single dish among the 7 we ordered. Go for the Cavallo! And the semi drunk but very competent waiter is just a lovely addition:)

I've been here several time and I never found anything below excellent. Small place, awsome food and atmosphere. The menù is particular and changes every couple of months. The courtesy is amazing. Definitely a must
