Buonasera, vorrei chiederla una domanda. Mio amico mi ha detto che al vostro ristorante paghi non so se è 25 euro o 30 e mangi tutta la pasta che vuoi. Siccome ho cercato su internet ma non mi dice nulla , non so se forse lui ha sbagliato ristorante o siete voi ma non c'è l'informazione su Google. Grazie e scusate il Disturbo
