It’s so refreshing when someone knows how to serve a bowl of vegetables that are not only high quality but also prepared just right and taste excellent. Well done for getting something so precious and simple absolutely right!! 👍🏻 Definitely coming for more!!

A simple menu with really good food. Chef and owner Katia spent two years at test Kitchen, yet the food is unpretentious but varied and delicious. Home made pasta is as good as you'll get. Service is friendly and very good. Very reasonable pricing

Very busy on a Saturday. We had three breakfasts and two soups. All the breakfast meals were great. The tomato soup (soup of the day) was not good.
