“First Real Italian Meal”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

After 19 hours of air travel and air plane food, I was so happy just to sit down with a lovely cold glass of wine, and be served a complimentary and delicious boca - - I was too tired really to study the menu, and asked the friendly English speaking waiter what he would order - and I was introduced to a variety of pasta I've never had before, with a delicious sauce with bits of crispy fried pork - too bad I don't remember the name - it was fantastic!
