Location and contact

Italian restaurant since 1994. We serve typical itailan dishes and Mediterranean traditions. Homemade pasta, wood-baked pizza, fresh fish every day and the best meat cuts await you. The desserts are also home-made and you can enjoy our delights in the air-conditioned dining room and on the outdoor terrace. In the winter, however, you will enjoy a cozy and warm fireplace. The restaurant has free parking for around 200 cars.
