You can watch your meals made via tele! It's a great place in the center. The ravioli and tagliatelle are amazing. Everything is fresh and hot. Prices are very reasonable.

Food ok ( ravioli for me was too small portion as limited selection being vegetarian) but husband raved about king prawns. Service okay and overall more expensive than others but would go back

Difficult to say as they have a wide menu and excellent wine list. You could have a two course meal for euro 25 or a five course for euro 100. Both options would be excellent!
