The inside of the restaurant is very romantic especially at night. They have live guitarist and singers all night long. Moderate portion size which is perfect. An AMAZING selection of wine which means you’ll need a lot of help from one of the very helpful...More

See title! This was literally the best meal ever. From the service to the impeccable food and the perfect view. If you are debating on booking a reservation just do it! Do the tasting menu paired with the wines and you will not be disappointed.

Hi, I’m not too sure if my husband did or not, but you should call and try. We did have a view and it was well worth it. I’m jealous... enjoy!

Oops I mistakenly answered for the restaurant at Villa Franca. We only had dinner here so I cannot help with the breakfast. Dinner at La Sponda was good with a romantic setting.
