The best food we've had on our trip thus far. Very authentic. We've eaten in restaurants with perhaps better atmosphere but none with better food. 😊

We ate twice here during our short stay; I had to go back for the macaroni and truffle which really was delicious. The pork and peppercorn similarly so. Difficult to get a table outside. Inside simple but pleasant and made up for by flavours. Simple...More
