After three weeks Costa Rica, this is for me the best. We had two times one antipasta shared by two, each a maincourse and a bottle of wine for 50 EUR. A warm hearted headwaiter senor Luiz, a kitchen staff that prepared with love healthy and tasty food, nicely presented large portions. We felt sorry we did not Discovery this... More

I was in the mood for something different. Not usually a huge Italian fan, but as I said, "something different."
