Haven't eaten here for years. Menu is pretty much the same & quality is still wonderful. The waiting staff were outstanding. Very attentive & friendly. Quiet noisy inside so probably not the best if you want an intimate dinner, but a lovely night.

The service was really very friendly! The restaurant is nice positioned with outside area. Menu sounds good! Big variety, for drinks too! Gnocchis was super soft, just a little bit too much Nutmeg in it for me! Did not like the scallops much.
