The restaurant is operated by two young men who are cousins. It is named in memory of the father of one who was a tailor. They are a good pair, with one managing the front of the house, and the other the kitchen.
We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and had our choice of several tables outside. Service started out good. We ordered glasses of sparkling wine to start. The selection was very good, the serving size was fine, and the price was reasonable.
We selected the fixed price dinner, with the wine paring, but had different secondi.
To start, Amberjack marinated in herbs and olive oil. Very good, and paired well with a white wine.
Followed by beef marinated for 48 hours in single malt scotch whisky, and slow roasted and slightly smoked. Very good, and plenty of food.
Next was ravioli stuffed with Ricotta and Pecorino, cheese, with a butter sauce and diced vegetables. Also very good and quite large.
My wife selected the grouper (hot), on gazpacho (cold). It was very light, and very good.
I selected the braised ox tail with pureed potatoes.
We enjoyed our desserts, a flan, with mango gelato and chocolate; and a white chocolate mousse, with pistachio gelato and dark chocolate.
This is a hard restaurant to rate because it has so much to offer, but it was also very disappointing. On the plus side, the food was excellent as was the service in the beginning. The pace was good until it was time for the secondi, and for that we waited about 40 minutes. It was another 30 minute wait for the desserts.
We expected dinner to take about two hours, but in our case it was over three, because of the dead time.
It was working on a “Five” until the pace fell off.
