The setting is romantic and the service is good. The food is good but the cooking was not excellent for the meat nor the fish, may be bad night.

I reluctantly ordered an octopus, luckily I believed the waiter, and it was delicious. My wife order a filet risoto, it was ok, nothing special.

Great food here and an amazing setting. However the service is terrible. We had to beg to get on the list to get a table, the food took about two hours to get served. Food is good but not worth the bad service. Go for a drink.
