This place has a cozy atmosphere with a romantic feeling. Service was good, the food even better. We had the seafood pasta, and the portions were really generous! Especially for a first course.

Excellent and fresh seafood platter and sea bass fish. Being a seafood lover, when it comes to seafood, my standard is quite high and this place did not disappoint. The pasta is ok. Service is prompt and responsive and friendly.
