What a delightful surprise. A very popular establishment with locals, we were very keen to try it and we took the plunge with a couple of our foodie friends from NY. The dining room is smartly decorated and the atmosphere lively although a bit loud. The service was relaxed and to the point. Our your waitress was very competent and made very good suggestions for the wine. The focus is really on the food. The chicken raviolo was a real revelation: moist, tasty filling wrapped in lovely light pasta. All my companions had the foie gras and rated it highly. My main of Rump of veal, caramelised cauliflower, roast salsify and parmesan was bordering on exquisite. I am partial to salsify and it matched beautifully the milky sweetness of the veal. A quick taste of
the fried sea bream and of the pork belly and cheek made me realize that I want to go back before these to dishes go off the menu. The deserts were equally compelling. The creme catalan with vanilla doughnuts and seville orange marmalade was a triumph of bold flavours. The bill was accetable for a restaurant of this caliber. There is some real passion for food in this place. They just got a star, it is completely deserved and we will be keeping watch of how the progress to the next one.
