The view from the terrace is nice - that is the positive thing to say about this restaurant. My partner ordered a dish with wild boar and polenta. When it arrived it was cold. Not just not heated enough - no, it was cold as...More

In a city with so many good places to eat I wonder how they manage to keep going? My wife and I were shown to a bench table for two facing a brick wall on the terrace. The unsmiling (and I suspect untrained young waiter)...More
