Great experience at the restaurant. The food was good (not outstanding). For mains we ate the basil shrimp risotto and the lobster ravioli. The risotto was the better of the two
For dessert we had tiramisu which was ok. The main course is definitely better here.
Would say this is more of a place for the experience - lovely views, decent food, good service

The food was outstanding. The gents had the seafood tasting menu, which was excellent value. My friend & I had the pork loin, tender & very tasty. Perfect place for a nice dinner! Lovely views & helpful staff.

Food was good (the appetizer tasted and catch of the day are recommended) and once our table was cleaned between courses was fast to come. However took a while to get plates cleaned between courses. One outside wait staff stood out negatively due to an out of context comment she made to another table without understanding the situation.

A stunning restaurant with good service and a reasonably priced menu. We enjoyed prawns and clams for starters, the truffle pasta was to die for, the Liguran style fish of the day was cooked beautifully and the leek rosti with mullet was delicious too. No complaints at all!

Good location. Two things:
1. Fire your chefs, everything was awful and over cooked.
2. Cellar and serve your red wines at 16 c. Disrespectful to the vinters and customers to do what you are doing (wine being stored and sold at very high temps tires)

Worst meal we have had italy (3+ years of vacation).
