I went to this restaurant for a dinner party. I will probably never go back. Poor service, the waiters look clueless and disoriented. It took ages to get anything from them. The food was very avarege. The only nice thing I have to say about it is the terrace.

Nice place, with a nice view. Parking available. Very good buffet. Good food. Friendly service. The only thing not so good was that there are two rooms and only one buffet,. So, I was in the room that was more far from the food. Nevertheless a good experience.

The restaaurant Spianata is great for dining. Everytime I go, it makes me want to stay, for the environment, the food and the service... so, it becomes a great place to have long, interesting conversations.
