          Salve a tutti, ivi scrivo in merito a questa struttura, perché avevo riposto molte aspettative in essa, tanto che avevo pensato di utilizzarla per il ricevimento del mio matrimonio. Purtroppo in questi ultimi mesi, le recensioni stanno avendo una votazione sempre minore, soprattutto relativamente al servizio fornito da cucina e camerieri. Davvero le vostre esperienze sono state così pessime? Potreste darmi qualche altro dettaglio? C'è qualcuno che invece si è trovato bene? Grazie mille a tutti Ciao
