Martina was great! Our driver was well appointed and on time. For lunch they served mixed tapas with truffle condiments and truffle cheese, roasted peppers with the garlic sauce, fried egg with black truffle freshly shaved, homemade noodles with butter and fresh truffle, and a chocolate dessert. Recommended.
