Lovely Italian restaurant with tables on the riverside where shoals of fish gather to feed on the bread & veg that diners "drop" into the river. Good choice menu, reasonably priced and friendly attentive staff

Hate complaining but this place is terrible. Bad bad food. Everything was undercooked. Told the manager who couldn't care less. Avoid if you prefer not to pay for expensive barely cooked food. Hope my mistake serves as a warning to others.

Warm welcome... Lovely decor and great location. The owner was more than happy to accommodate for a vegan pizza which was really nice of him. Unfortunately while I waited I could see the chef preparing the food, he came from outside and did not wash his hands. I also saw the chef put his hands into a box of food and after licking his fingers and then continued to put his hand back into the food! The pizza was small and extremely oily. The vegetables were inedible. The oil was literally dripping off my food and I literally had to wipe the grease off with a serviette. It was horrible. I won't be returning.

Pleasant evening here in this vibrant restaurant. (Almost first in at 19.30 hrs, so table no problem and"put" )naturally) by front windows overlooking the tidal river gurgling by. A popular restaurant offering Italian and French cuisine with a wine list appropriate for either. Pizza and Pasta clearly popular with the customers who by 20.30 had arrived in numbers filling all available tables and meaning folk arriving later wait at the ( busy) bar whilst waiting for a table to become free.

Three courses pre dinner drinks we paid 85 Euros for a good value experience. The Cote de Veau was plentiful as was the spaghetti with rocket and pine nuts.

The restaurant to the left of the Mona Lisa is almost empty.....speaks volumes.
