Highly recommend the regional cheeses and salami platter expertly paired with local wines chosen by the knowledgeable and attentive host, Nila. A lovely quiet place just off the main tourist street. Well worth finding.

We also had a selection of breads, cheeses and salamis which were well presented and delicious. Our group of four spent a wonderful couple of hours in this... More
