After a long time came back...this is truly an amazing experience...candle light dinner. The service was good, the food was better!! Pasta and meat are a great feast. A good wine selection makes the evening special. Also I recommend the desserts...you won't me disappointed!!

We went to this restaurant the first night because we could walk from our hotel, and the staff said is was good. It's situated a little walk down a small road/path and it was a little dark. Once you get to the restaurant its so cute and we loved the food. Service was great also. We liked it so much... More
