Really, there's only one guy who plays all the roles. He's a sommelier, waiter, chef, cook. You just tell him fish or meat. White or red wine. I won't tell you more. It's a pleasent surprise.

The owner of this restaurant is front of house, waiter and chef - but don't think this makes for a stressful eating experience as he's so relaxed and chilled out you wouldn't even realise he's a one man band! As soon as we arrived he...More

Some of the best food we had in Italy. So good, we did it 2 nights in a row and never had the same meal twice. It's a one man show and no menu, which for some may be a deterrent, but if you are...More
