Not only is the location excellent and classy setting in the marina of Kalamata, Greece. But it is something unexpected. One of the best italian restaurants i have been to in the world.

I have visited the restaurant several times and always remains a constant value. Once our time impressed with the excellent taste and especially the pasta with handmade fresh truffle. It was very tasty and very special. Authentic Italian cuisine with excellent tastes and very polite stuff.
