The owner, Fausto, is hands on and some in his team have been with him for over 10 years. Special requests are not a problem. If you want to skip the menu and trust the kitchen you... More

Went as a couple. I'm coeliac and informed them on booking in person. Arrived a couple of hours later and they didn't have a complete understanding of my needs. Service good and not too expensive. Limited menu made even more limited by my needs.

Had the 7 course degustation menu. It was mouthwateringly superb. The chestnut soup was the best I have tasted and the quail was melt in your mouth. Very good value for money - it's a must try!

I was in the restaurant just recently with a friend of mine. We just dropped in without prior reservation. Luckily we could be seated. The service and food were both above my expectation; although I had been here earlier. Just superb!

Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world.
