Visited for an unplanned lunch on the back of TripAdvisor ratings. Did not disappoint. An owner meets you that is enthusiastic and loves his restaurant. Very inventive menu and a level of cuisine that deserves Michelin stars (not sure if this restaurant holds any?) The...More

If there is something like Yoga in Eating, this is the place: Almost meditative atmosphere, most attentive service (move your head only), extraordinary food and a very inviting owner made our 25th wedding anniversary a very special evening. Grazie mille, Maestro!

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
