I had been to Da Samson, with a few friends since one of them was craving Ethiopian food. The staff were very courteous, the food was brilliant and very filling. I would definitely recommend having the traditional tea after your meal. You should visit and have a dinner meal at Da Samson. Ciao!

Zighini is a typical recipe of Easten Africa: meat, vegetables and chilly sauce to be eaten with your hands by the help of a piece of Ingera, a special kind of bread a bit like a sponge. If you like spicy tastes and informal service you should try this small and nice restaurant. Try also the appetisers.
