We had the full 4 course dinner with flavours that not only excite ones palate but leaving you wondering 'how do the chefs create such delicacies 'The wine list is extensive and features Italy's best !...

This restaurant is a hidden gem! I went as part of a tour in September 2016 so we had a specified menu which was absolutely delicious. Everyone in our group of 12 was extremely impressed with the quality,innovative preparation, service and atmosphere.

The owner of a nearby terra-cotta shop recommended this very special restaurant for lunch after a morning of shopping. The chefs are two brothers. The meal was delicious and beautifully presented in a lovely dining room. It was such a pleasant surprise.
