All our dishes were delicious and the service was 5 star. Pasta first course was cooked to perfection and the fish main course were brilliant. Just managed a small panacotta desert to finish the meal. Highly recommend.

We had a table in the courtyard, a beautiful setting. A little secret courtyard, I won't sit inside. Nothing special. The service was very good. The food was average. We will go back for the setting.

What a wonderful dining experience we had! We first had lunch in the very quiet area outside in the back of the restaurant, far from the street. Luigi, our waiter made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed the atmosphere so much we went there...More
