Went there recently for a special occasion with great service and very good meals for all of us. Straight forward well done Italian cuisine. No major quibbles apart from a slight lack of innovation in their choices, but well done classics in a classic manner.

I started with the soup, wonderful rich flavour, followed with the beets salad, I loved it - great combinations of fruit vegetable and cheese. Wonderful selection of wine.

They usually have a braised meat dish as a special. It is always excellent. The balcony provides a great place to watch people enjoying the waterfront. Then you can walk off your dessert by taking a stroll yourself.

This is a restaraunt I have been at many times and have always found the food exceptional. If lucky, in the summer enjoy the out door balcony and take in the view. great service and as mentioned have ever been disappointed with the food.

I'm sorry to say I'm not sure. We always take my 9 year old granddaughter but they have never once asked if we would like a children's menu for her. I can only assume that they would offer one if they had one. However... More
