This dinner was fabulous. My sister and I had salmon - excellent, my husband had the sea bass - excellent, and my brother in law had tuna - excellent. The appetizers were also fabulous, as was the Etna wine. It was a perfect meal!

Brilliant food. The duck was perfect, the tuna was sublime. We had a fantastic time, especially as the ambiance was lively with still swift and attentive service. Surprisingly affordable, and even with great wine!
