I went here with a friend for dinner. The place is small, cosy and fantastic for a nice evening out. The hostess was very welcoming, spoke excellent english, and provided a very welcoming, warm culinary experience. The pasta was fantastic here.

Truly original choice of pasta plates. The goal of the cook is really to make you travel around Italy with a wide choice of pasta. Not expensive at all and suits for every type of meal. You should try it for sure !
