Authentic Ethiopian Eritrean food in a charming family run spot. We are so thrilled to come across this little gem close to our hotel near the Termini. Not to be missed lamb and vegetarian dishes. And the half bottle Chianti Corvo is reasonably priced at...More

Salve, vorrei organizzare una cena ma fra i commensali ci sarebbe chi non può mangiare piccante. Ci sono alternative poco piccanti o poco speziate nel menù a sufficienza? Grazie
