We visited with a large family with 3 naughty babies. The owner and waiter (Joven) were so helpful and accomodating, giving us plenty of time to order and guiding us through the menu.

Love the choice of starters and mains and (of course) the desserts! I had seabass carpaccio for starter and gamberoni as a main. Some family members opted for the meat plates, and they too were excellent. Will... More
