What we love
  • The Mediterranean specialties, such as seafood salad with shrimps, octopus and calamari, served with seasonal vegetables and basil, and the shrimps salad and artichokes
  • The pasta, bread, and breadsticks are always fresh and fragant, which are made daily in the restaurant's oven
  • Must try the Paccheri with eggplant, sweet bacon and pecorino cheese, and the Tagliolini with mussels, zucchini flowers and raw bacon
  • The excellent Octopus Catalan, accompanied by red onions, marinated with Sardinian tomatoes and basil
  • The delicious meat dishes, such as the traditional rib, presented on a hot iron, caramelized with porcini mushrooms and chicory
