A very friendly welcome, and good food. Small and cosy venue, good for lunch or coffee.

Great atmosphere, good music, excellent service. My food was good, though a little too much salt and sweetness. Highly recommended for a quick meal, or for a fun meal with a group of friends.

Had a great evening. The service is friendly. Everyone takes great care to find out what you want. Big smiles and welcomes. The food is interesting. Chocolate pasta, for example! Highly recommended for an intimate dinner.
