Our friends treated us to this dinner at this restaurant. This was our second visit after a long interval. I am more impressed with the food this time around. The squid egg appetizer was tasty as well as the veal.

Had dinner here early on a Friday night and was very pleased. The atmosphere, service and food was great. We had the eggplant and the cod and loved it. The owner is great and even played piano for us! We plan on returning. Highly recommended.
