No wonder this restaurant is very popular. The food is good and the setting by the canal is perfect for a sunny evening. We sat on the terrace watching the gently activity along the pathway and the water relaxing after a long days travelling.

Perfect for our family of 7 and nice ambiance with candles for an evening dinner. The servers were very accommodating to our teenagers special requests. Reasonable prices for pasta only dishes, meat dishes were a bit steeper, but good quality and portions.
