Been here several times before. Disappointed this time. Out of several items on menu and service very slow and inattentive. Sat for 10 minutes with empty glass. No waiter in sight.

It's been a while since we were here last, but nothing has changed....and that's good.The decor is genuine rustic, the service is excellent and their mussels and mushroom burger were very good. We'll see them again in the near future.
