We came in here not knowing what to expect, just looked like a nice old bookstore from the street, came to find they sell wonderful food and the people who work in there are all very nice.

If you want to taste something typical, you have to come here. Good service, clumsy atmosphere and very tasty food!

Nice place but awful food. We got our dishes 3 minutes after ordering, everything was overcooked, for sure from the microwave. I don't recommend this place for eating. Big disappointement!

Charming place with a great atmosphere and friendly staff! Everything we ordered was great and the pasta is just awesome! Waiting is not too much, probably around 10-15 minutes. Definitely worth it! You gonna love it!

This is a centrally located restaurant that is surprisingly affordable and that is why you need to get there by 7:15 (19:15) or be prepared to wait. They do not take reservations. But it is a great option for solo travelers because there are many...More
