We enjoyed our meals, of pan-fried salmon, with excellent vegetables, and 200g steak. Both looked great and tasted delicious. Pinot rose (sold by the glass) went down a treat with the salmon. Service was attentive and engaged.

Stopped with friends for a late night affagato and creme brûlée after eating elsewhere. We arrived late just before closing. The staff welcomed us warmly and face top service at the end of their shift. We highly recommend this place to others.
