Food was good but not that much better than other places. And it was way too expensive. Dubble the price of other restaurants in the same street. The north American owner was very rude to his wife, who worked there with him, and the staff....More

Ribs were very good but Fettuccine very bad with no taste. The Brownie was quite good but we had to wait 15min to order dessert and the restaurant was empty. Expensive.
