Visited with small family party. Waitress was more concerned at selling expensive items from specials menu and recommending expensive wine, without knowing what our food choice would be. After making it clear that we were capable of making informed decisions the food and wine were...More

The Pane All'Aglio was disappointing -- fancy Italian name for what seems to be a pizza crust, large but not especially tasty. But main dishes were very good, especially roasted salmon. Desert was excellent. Nice atmosphere on terrace. Really helpful and friendly staff on day...More

We had a lovely dinner with my friends. Our waiter Vincenzo was very helpful and patient - as it was quite difficult to make our mind and place our order. We had a wonderful food, wine and service. Will be back hopefully soon.
