Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at this establishment. The restaurant is situated in an older building with an air of deep routed customs and traditions. The food and drinks menu is extensive - even the fussiest eaters can find something for themselves. 5 stars for service, cleanliness...More

A very traditional restaurant with an old style of decor. Probably a little touristy, but the meatballs were amazing. Book in advance for an evening reservation. If you are just after meatballs, Meatballs for the People is another option
