Wonderful location, huge portions. Service was very pleasant. This is well worth visiting, although in this region there are so many good restaurants one sometimes finds one runs out of superlatives. Very good.

We popped in for a late afternoon lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The pizzas were so tasty - thin and delicious. Would recommend the Parma ham and gorgonzola- delicious! Great views from comfy chairs on the deck and nice background music from the pianist.

We visited to buy wine but stayed for lunch. Incredible menu. We loved the view. Although it was a little windy on the day, it was still very pleasant outside on the terrace.
