The decoration and atmosphere was quite nice, cozy, and intimate. The staff were excellent, very friendly and attentive.

Unfortunately the food was a bit of a let-down. The scamorza dish was just melted mozzarella covered by a bland tomato sauce - heavy and boring, tasted like scraping the top off a pizza. The slow-cooked egg was alright, but nothing to write home about. I had the fish with vegetables which was ok, and came with the same bland tomato sauce as the scamorza. I did enjoy the gnocchi which seemed homemade, but the dish could have benefitted from a little more asparagus.
Generally the food wasn't particularly great, and rather expensive for what was offered.

I'd come for a drink next time, but have dinner elsewhere.

The food and beautiful setting were perfect, we enjoyed. Also, wonderful wine menu!! But the waitress was really rude, unfriendly, made us feel unwelcome. She doesn't understand a smile and some friendly words, even though when you are busy, would have made it a totally different experience.

Worth a visit since it once was a dating hotel. The art deco decoration was restored, and some pleasant pictures refer to the origins. Excellent lounge and cocktails. Pleasant atmosphere, excellent italian food and wines.

A very limited menu made us think that the quality would be assured and decided to go for the pasta dishes. The tagliolini all' astice (lobster) was a great disappointment. It tasted like tagliolini in tomato sauce without any flavour of lobster. Two thin stripes of lobster on top of the pasta did not change much the impression. Besides the tagliolini were very thin, not the usual type that we are used in Italy, which made them stick together in mass.
On the other hand the orecchiette with a sauce of sausage and pumpkin was a very nice surprise. The pasta cooked to the right point, tasty and very generous especially with the sausage in the sauce.
The service was not good. We had to ask for the oil, for the grated parmesan, etc. The atmosphere is nice, more in the old part than in the new extension.
