The staff were so pleasant. The food was excellent. Dessert was to die for. Very cheap especially for the amount of mmms we were doing while eating. The inside is a beautiful stone walled building with an authentic arch. Couldn't rate it higher.

Had fantastic spaghetti with sea urchin, a good steak and 2 risottos plus desert for under e60 for four. The place isnt flash but food perfectly cooked. No pressure to eat a full menu which was most appreciated.
