We looked for a restaurant near the hotel that serves vegetarian dishes. The concierge at the hotel recommended this restaurant. We enjoyed the food and the service and went back to eat the next day

Yes they were, and we were treated as very valued guests. The atmosphere and ambience were very much as we have found in good restaurants in Italy, where we have never been disappointed.
