Came here 5 years ago with my family but couldn't remember the name. So happy I was able to find it again. The food here is the best in all of Santa. I highly recommend any of the pastas. The chef is from Tuscany and it shows. Great wines food and it's not expensive at all.

The food menu was great... More

This is one of the first places we go when we arrive in Santa Teresa. They always have an outstanding menu of unique and interesting fusions and can modify to meet special diets. Very friendly and welcoming service.
