Very unpretentious and simple. Very nice dishes. Burrata was very good. Lasagna was the best (according to my husband) my grilled fish was simple and very well prepared!

We ate here almost every day either lunch or dinner in our "own table in the corner". You eat here once, and you will come back the next day. Paolo, being Italian, uses fresh ingredients from his region and cooks with passion. We will back...More
