If you are looking for a special local and very delicious plates, go there for dinner. We had a very delicious home made soup. Rozetto and Burger were very very tasty. We tried also their home made ketchup👍. Everything was just perfect 👌

Excellent wood fired steak, excellent cheese board. My wife was a little less enthusiastic about the choice - there was really not much for someone that doesn't like lots and lots of meat and cheese. Lovely local wine by the glass. Service was very attentive...More
