Very famous restaurant, right under the aquaduct. I have seen it from many TV shows. Sucking piglet is good. Pig ear and bean stew was exceptional. But the white asparagus and grilled shrimp were just so so. Service was excellent!

This is a classic of all time. We had the best views of the aqueduct from our table. We ordered tripes, suckling pig and lamb. Fall off the bone juicy goodness! Finished off with coffee and Zamoran cheese.
