130 different types of cheese from the most recognized producers. This is the Cheeseland!!! In addition to the pure cheeses they also serve pasta and other dishes made with cheese. Just pick one combination recommended by the chef (6 types preset)... you can't go wrong!

Excellent cheese restaurant outside the city center, a bit hidden and still full. Food is delicious, tried a number of entries, main courses and desserts and all were very tasty and well prepared. Staff is great, attentive and nice but not overwhelming. Would definitely recommend.
