The restaurant is part of a big Hotel and it offers a surprising restaurant. The dishes served are very good, fresh, their chefs are amazing. I served here 4 meals and it was a bliss every time. The view is spectacular

This is an exception to the rule: a fantastic hotel restaurant. The menu offers absolutely wonderful food both local and Italian in general. The extensive wine list is worth reading for itself. Dined here twice and had a superb experience. Service is immaculate.
