Went several times to Francesco, this time went with a friend for dinner. The food was as always outstanding (had ossobucco), very tasteful and soft. Very personal and pleasant atmosphere, excellent service. Absolute recommendation, both for business occasion or lunch/dinner out with family and kids.

Good value for money and broad choice (in various prices). Francesco makes it a pleasure to eat there because of his warm-harted charm.

Excellent Italian cuisine, nice location, but the service creates such a stressy atmosphere that at the end of the evening we were glad to get out of there. What a pity for all the chef's efforts.
