We made a reservation for dinner same day and sat in their "tower" - the food was amazing- if they still have the squid ink pasta we highly recommend it. Service was excellent! Andre, our waiter was funny and very nice making us feel right...More

I booked this four months in advance, and requested the “Lovers Table”. This paid off as it was the best table in the restaurant! Amazing views and lovely food, but not overpriced. It is crazy busy at opening hours so don’t think you’ll be able...More

Wow, what an experience. The octopus, mussels and mozzarella were just divine and then we had the best Vongole and pesto in Italy. The flavours were so fresh and delicate. Coupled with the wine, olive oil and view on a gorgeous September day and it...More
