Lovely location, service was prompt and friendly. However the quality of othe food was really poor. We ordered truffle risotto. The portion was tiny and cold. It seems that it was not freshly cooked as it came out so quickly and the texture wrong. There...More

Special that evening was pasta with white truffles...a local specialty. Loved it! We had a large group for dinner and the wait staff handled everything well.
