The food was delicious, we felt very welcome and the service was great. The portions are huge and the meat selection for 2 that we ordered was more than enough for 4 people. Definitely a recommended place for dinner.

The restaurant cooks in a traditional clay oven and you could tell the difference. The chef was wandering around the tables chatting which was nice.
