This is a hard review to write. Do you focus on the experience or the food? The experience is off the charts, with great flair and presentation for all of over three hours in our case. The food, however, while wonderfully presented, just didn’t have the flavors we anticipated. For example, I had a piece of fish, that for all its beauty on the plate, was just rubbery without much flavor. My wife’s experience with lamb was slightly different with good flavor but an excess of gristle. We had a delightful evening, paid too much for the experience, laughed at the 93 page wine book that looked like a Bible from the 14th century, but ultimately were a bit disappointed. Of our four evening meals in this area, this food was the least enjoyable. Loved the experience, but head down the hill for better food.

We had a fantastic meal at I Salotti. The meal begins with a glass of sparkling wine and a look through the water menu. The water menu lists out a couple page of various water options sorted by their mineral concentration. We found a nice sparkling water to accompany our meal.

For our meal we decided on the seafood tasting menu. The dishes were all excellent, my favourite being the octopus.

Service was wonderful, staff was friendly and very attentive. They also spoke excellent English for us non-Italian speakers.

We were lucky enough to book the restaurant through thefork who had a 20% offer on at the time.

The staff were warm and friendly - not snooty in anyway and gave recommendations without any pressure to take them.

Throughout the meal we enjoyed complimentary mini dishes from the chef including a cheese brûlée, petit fours, a pre desert etc. The food was delightful and the whole experience very enjoyable.

Would highly recommend especially whilst the offer is on. A gem!

Went there for a special wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The fixed fish menu was great. The service was excellent; very attentive and each dish explained fully. We would definitely return there.
