Preeminent among the main courses is the Quinua breaded filet of sole with caramelized banana Baroa Potato Puree. Other suggestions are Creamy Fettucine with white mushrooms, Shitake and Dried Funghi, Popcorned Rice and Risotto with Brie, Jamon and arugula. The highlight of the Restaurant is the open kitchen.
