We had in total 7 different plates. Simple and typical titles but so perfect like you have never had them before. Service was friendly but could be a bit more professional in order to be perfect. Thanks a lot Don Rosario hope see you soon

We have visited this restaurant many many times. It´s not the location, it´s not the service - It´s the food you come here for. Time and a time again. They serve the most delicious italien dishes.
