I have never eaten such a bad food. The salad and carbonara had absolutely no taste and tiramisu tasted like alcohol. The service was average. Would never go back there!

This is a very friendly restaurant that has both excellent staff and truly delicious food. I have been to many restaurants in my life, but I have never eaten such a delicious starter as I had in this lovely restaurant. I was in food heaven!...More
