The place was nice, it had the correct decoration and seemed to be a fine dinning restaurant nevertheless when we ordered the food we were absolutely disappointed. The grilled octopus was super dry and hard to eat. The risotto lacked flavor and consistency. Definitely never going again, hard to believe they offer real Italian food.

The place has an amazing pasta and antipastos. I ate a Fish fillet with vegetables and was delicious. You can enjoy also exposition of paintings regularly from local artists.

This is a superior restaurant that usually performs but some dishes, like the pizza, leave a lot to be desired.
