We went there with my boyfriend on a Sunday night and were very happy to come across this place! Staff was nice and available. Decoration, atmosphere and music set up a calming romantic scene. We had delicious goat crostini as a starter, then I had pasta with gambas and my boyfriend had the tagliatelle carbonara. The dishes were really tasty... More

We had the 3 course dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine for €50. Lots of choices for each course and the quality of each course was very high. The service was very good and friendly.
