I decided to stop at this restaurant and have a quick dinner, as a pasta person I opted for Moroccan chicken pasta with no cream which was outstanding for me, it was perfectly made in such a way and the seasoning was good as well as presentation was wonderful. I finished off with panacotta as my desert, lovely choices indeed.... More
