Good food. Friendly service. Serenading singers. What a fun night. The entrees were terrific. The salads were large and easily splitable for 3 people. The calamari appetizer was huge. The only downside is that there was quite a bit of breading. All in all, a...More

I had the branzino and my wife had the lasagna. Both nicely prepared. Menu somewhat limited but what is offered is quite good.

While staying at the Universal Portofino Hotel, we had our anniversary dinner here. The service was excellent but the high point was the table side serenade delivered by the couple who also performs a daily show in the hotel courtyard.
