On arrival we asked the waiter if he could simply bring a selection of dishes to us that he would recommend, blind tasting it you will. I appreciate that it sounds a little crazy but we were glad that we did as we were treated to a tasty anti pasti, an excellent prima piatti of pasta and a superb dessert... More

We were only in town for one night. Our hotel. Grand Hotel Palace, highly recommended this place. We asked about several, other places we saw and were steered right back to,this place every time...now we know why. The service was excellent, wine list extensive. Both foreign and domestic wines offered. We ordered a wine from Italy and enjoyed our selection.... More

Great food. Expensive but worth it. Anti pasta selection is stunning. Mains are all very very good. Kids very well served with shared frito misto. Great and very reasonable wine list. Service also excellent. Nice shady area to sit outside.

The place looks nice, but its only exterior appearance, the price are high but this could be not a problem if is related with good quality but is not the case. I took an amatriciana which is not a classic nouvelle cousine dishes and they bring to me max 30g of pasta. Moreover the staff seems to kidding you. I... More

The chef knows how to cook, that's for sure. We all ate delicious Italian food all served in nice portions. I chose the tagliata (meat) that was very nice and well grilled, my husband chose the maialino (baby pork) and we were both pleased. But the staff was not well organized and one obvious sign of it was their running... More

Had a birthday family dinner of 5 persons. Food, presentation, wine list are excellent. Good and quick service. Dessert menu is a special feature of the place. The chef's wife Egle is very friendly and professional. She makes fantastic desserts!

I really enjoyed my lunch. The toasted bread with oil and rosemary could have been a meal itself. The ravioli dish was wonderfully delicious and fresh. The wine selection is excellent. The location is perfect for a nice walk after lunch or dinner. Pricing is moderate to high but you won't be disappointed.

We was in this restaurant for the first time. And there was no free table about 10 pm. Truly to say all dishes were outstanding and delicious. But service was really terrible. We were waiting every dish about 40-50 minutes. And tiramisu, coffee and tea 50 minutes! I was really disappointed. 4 waiters asked me, if I want tea or... More
