This was another restaurant in which we had dinner and it was really very good. We had an appetizer and a main course which was plenty since the portions are pretty large. Great Atmosphere Great Food

Food was excellent, a bit expensive, but well worth the price. Went in the middle of the afternoon and place was not crowded.
