We have been there for a family sunday lunch. Very well adapted. Do not expect high luxury. Things are made simple, there is a place for children to play, the food is good (it is not a Michelin 3-star, but it is in relation with an acceptable price), The Italian host is very nice. In summary, we had a good... More
