After the renovation the basiv charm is still there. Menu is fill with good choices and the wine list making everything nice and easy. It is a bit crowded and noisy, so that takes one star away. Good location.

The food is ok, nothing really exciting, and sometimes bad. The service is personal and friendly. But for the price of the meal there is lots of better places.
