Food was delicious, and the portions were large. The menu was good. The prices were fairly decent. Service was very good. It was a neat little place in the Old City to have dinner. I will go back.

We went on a Wednesday, which was half price wine night. Our shared flatbread starter was light, crispy and delicious. My chicken main course with capers and lemon butter was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. Overall wonderful food and very good value.

The very nice wait staff said the meatballs were great...she was right!! I had spaghetti and meatball and my wife had the lasagna. Both were excellent!! What a well kept secret that should get out. The bread was also excellent. We'll be back.
