Ordered the Caponata with Swordfish & marinated anchovies, Mixed Seafood Tagliatelle and Swordfish Eggplant Tagliatelle, and a bottle of white wine. The caponata was a perfect start with the chilled white wine. We spent some time trying to figure out why the marinated anchovies were...More

The service was excellent, very attentive and friendly. The food did not live up to expectations with fish a little dry and overcooked . Good value for money overall and a nice place but need to be less experimental and more focus on good technique...More
