and definitely one on the better side of Italian food ! The starters with octopus/potato and the buffalo mozzarella were quite good. The fresh dorado filet with olive and capers was delicious. The comments from other visitors about the tomato sauce can only be confirmed.

Nice food and people, one of the few places we went to twice, once for lunch, then a different evening. Appears to have a limited menu, but only because there are so many specials. Great steak.

The service and food were fine, but nothing special and quite expensive for what you get. I tried the special which was lamb shanks and it came with just mashed potatoes - no vegetables, so a rather heavy meal with no colour. My husband had...More

It really depends on the type of meal. For a couple it cost us around Rs. 2,200 for a 2 course meal + drinks.
