Warm welcome. Attentive waiter. Varied menu. The food was lovely but for the price compared to other restaurants the fish served was small. Wines served at a perfect temperature.

Great armosphere, service and food. Very quaint, only six tables inside and a couple outside. The service was impeccable. They had several gluten free options for my daughter but no gluten free pasta. Make sure to have a reservation.
