You need to come here hungry... So much delicious food! Michele asked us at... More

When coming here you feel very welcome: You don't have to order anything, just sit down, relax, enjoy the drinks and food that come. And you won't be leaving hungry as the servings are generous. The food quality is ok, the fish could have been better.

This is a very unsusual place: there is no menu, you need to trust the chef for what you're gonna taste. You'd better be open though as no complains are accepted in this place. The chef basically brings plates until you're not hungry anymore. The food tastes like home food that you only have the priviledge to taste in a... More
