The food was excellent. We tried a variety of appetizers and entrees and everyone loved it. I had the Filet al Forno. Fantastic. Service was great and special thanks to Aaron for making sure our night was amazing.

Loved the restaurant - well removed from the touristy areas, seems to have a lot of locals there. Very pretty patio dining Great menu and everything we had - salads, snapper meunière, steak, octopus, excellent. The “but” is that the portions are tiny
