Friendly place for a good Italian meal. Not pretentious and with all the nice flavours and tastes of genuine Italian cuisine. Seems to be appreciated by real Italians. Always a good reference for any cuisine when nationals are regulars.

Met up with some friends we met on a cruise 15 years ago, and what a perfect location to do so! Sat upstairs on the deck, and were fortunate enough to score Chris as our Waiter. What a great guy! Though they were fairly busy,...More

The magic of a classic steakhouse, but with a decidedly contemporary twist. In-house aged rare cuts of beef, tableside Caesar salads, flambes, flaming coffees, and more. While he may find it familiar, it's definitely not your Daddy's steak house!
