We chose this place on a friend suggestion, and our party had a great dinner. Good service, very tasty food ( excellent meat ) and warm atmosphere. The wine, matched with each food, was also really good. As an overall, great night! We'll go back

Super local dishes. Very tasty food and wonderful wines to accompany each dish, at very reasonable prices. Real value for you money. Excellent service. The wines and other local products can be bought at very good prices. A place to come back for more!
