We visited this restaurant because a local told us it would be nice. Well it is nice, but nothing special. Also you get for the same price at other places in Merano better and more food. The stuff was also not as friendly as you would expect, probably there was too much work for just 3 waiters.

I had seen this restaurant with a fairly high ranking on trip advisor and went with my family during our stay in Merano. The food was totally mediocre, the service terrible and the bill was outrageous. I do not recommend this restaurant.
