Always a joy to dine here. I had Saute de Moules a la Italienne (mussels Italian-style) followed by Ravioli covered in generous shavings of black truffle...mmmm...delicious. Washed down with a fabulous bottle of Nobile di Montepulciano, red wine from Tuscany. Great restaurant.

Always excellent food and friendly service. Great choice of wine and the truffles are good. Good for groups with a separate dining area upstairs.
