Excellent food . Famous for its steaks and the way they present it - wonderful. We enjoyed it very much and we will return one day.

It was off-season on a rainy winter weekday lunch but the restaurant was cozy and the food was excellent. We ate upstairs from the butcher shop where the chef was roasting large portions of meats over an open charcoal spit. There were a few menus...More

Very nice meal, with good service in a location sitting on one of the main thorough fares. Would definitely go back here again for the steak. Worth checking out, especially when it feels you are surrounded by tourist traps.

Unforgettable experience that you can feel. Two type off food on menu, meet and vegetables. One type of wine but you can take your own without cork fee. Place is must for any traveler.

We scouted out the restaurant early in our stay nearby and meet up with Dario in the butchers shop downstairs. His staff were quick to pour us some wine as Dario cut off a couple of generous slices of his roast pork for us to...More
