My second time here in the last 5 years and it really once again smashed expectations. We ordered plate by plate so as to enjoy a long and leisurely Sunday lunch with the window view of the monastery buildings. Service is relaxed so make sure...More

After touring the monastery for 3 hours we popped into this little restaurant for lunch. Both the food and service was excellent! We only wished they had a better selection of wine by the glass. M

Beautiful Italian dinner! Service is very good. There are so many good dishes you don't know what to choose! Risotto is a very good choice. The Sauvignon Blanc is nice. Treat yourself and go here.

We enjoyed our diner, good prepared and well served. The prices were a bit high, the service a bit slowish, may be due to to many waiters around? Anyhow, absoluty a good restaurant to go for diner!

Good, solid restaurant. Busy with business people and tourists at lunchtime unlike most other places in town the week after Easter. Immense salad starter with superb dressing and then excellent seafood risotto. Staff correct but not especially helpful/friendly. Pudding menu looked great but didn't try.

The food at this restaurant was very good. A fusion of Italian and Peruvian flavors make for delicious flavors. On top of the great food, the restaurant provides a wonderful ambiance. Separate rooms make the experience both charming and more private with less tables around...More
