We were greeted and treated like family. What a superb staff and the owner came shortly afterwards to introduce himself and make sure we were pleased the food was delicious. A must go place for authentic food and great service!

We just stopped in for a drink and appetizers but were warmly welcomed. Peach wine is really tasty, and appetizer menu is good. It was raining so we ate inside near the downstairs bar. All the tables were occupied. Really attentive service.
