Came in for a lunch shortly before midday break, but got seated anyway and served a nice meal. Good selection of wines, very attentive service, and food was excellent, especially pasta with urchins.

We went here based on TripAdvisor reviews. We could unfortunately not eat outside as the terrace was closed. Building inside also nice. Service was very friendly and helpful but food was disappointing. Melanzane was not fresh and pasta way too salty. Would not go again.

Some of the best food we have eaten in a long time at a restaurant. And the view is simply amazing. A must visit if you are in town.
