Warm welcome. Attentive waiter. Varied menu. The food was lovely but for the price compared to other restaurants the fish served was small. Wines served at a perfect temperature.

We dropped for drinks before going out to dinner. We sat out in the narrow street watching the passing parade. The waiter was extremely helpful with great suggestions for red wines. The drinks were served with prosciutto wrapped bread sticks. We could easily have stayed...More
