Great Italian restaurant. Wide offer of authentic Italian dishes complemented with a wide selection of nice wines. Ambiance and service are perfect. While a little pricy, it offers a great "price-performance" ratio. Highly recommended.

The all glass reception room is a very beautiful view. The food is well prepared with a beautiful presentation. Always ask the waiter/ waitress for suggestions to try a new dish or deserts. Best place to visit for a candlelight dinner.
