A lovely restaurant with meatballs a speciality. My lads loved their steak. The citrus infusion in my meatballs was very delicate. The restaurant came highly recommended and I'd second that.

Very big portions of at least the meatballs. Had the ones with gorgonzola, they were yummy! Cool design inside the restaurant, which I appreciate.
