The worst bruschetta ever! Bad, dry bread; tasteless cheese (melted square slices) and unripe tomatoes, sliced and put on top of the melted cheese, but they didn't bother removing the hard part (where the stem meets)! Others in my party also had disappointing meals. It's...More

Got late in the night to this restaurant. The staff was very welcome and helpful. Ordered some roasted veal and it was great. The taste. The combination of spices just right. The prices decent enough too.
