If you want to try the unique raw food experience this is certainly the place to visit. You should make a reservation days before but it is worth waiting.

Really top experience! Yes, bit expensive, but worth it. Fsmous for raw fish, it was prepared un front of us with full explanation. Gnocchi with shrimps are great! At the end we were offered glass of rum and chocolate, nicely served. Proper slow food restaurant, all is served with care and style. Will come back!

Thank Mario P
