This is a great little place - wonderful food (particularly the courgette and ricotta tarte, and the chicken with orange sauce), friendly service, and very reasonable prices. This was our second time here and we had great experiences both times. Highly recommended.

Staff was friendly. Sadly we had to wait 1,5h for the main course, and when we got our mains they did not taste well at all. Luckily madame made us another main course which were delicious! We recommend the truffle ravioli.
