Love the decor and cosines of the place. What can we say. Food was tops. Pork cheeks, risotto and the meats were divine. The lovely host Valentina knows the wines really well and is an added bonus to the restaurant. Great teamwork Fromm all involved.

Very nice food and the service by Valentina was outstanding, always with a smile and attentive. I ate the rabbit and it was very well prepared and seasoned. The wine list is quite good as well.
