On the night we went it was the owner solo - maitre d', waiter, cook - and despite a full restaurant we neither felt neglected nor had long to wait for our food - a tour de force on his part! The food was fine,...More

There seems to only be one person running the restaurant! He provides table service and cooks. You are allowed to bring your own wine but while the food was good it took forever to get our meal. The price was reasonable and I enjoyed the...More
