Visited this wonderful place with a friend for a late dinner, had the best sea food in a lifetime, best friendly service anyone can ask for!! Ask for "Giovani" he's the host that made our experience twice as happy and pleasant.

Way too expensive for what you eat: when you have a fish filet for 30€ without seeing the fish where it is coming from, it is not fair. Also the cuisine is not modern: very classic and not so exiting compare to modern chefs ! A kind of disappointing. It is still good (not very) but not impressive for what... More

We were there on a Saturday, the personnel was extremely nice and polite. The food was amazing :) We had one of the sets menus (the one with meats) and paired it with a bottle of the house's wine and it was amazing. Fully recommend it!!

This restaurant should be better given the price and its long establishment in a prime location. Nothing was bad about it but the food was nothing special. My pasta with walnuts was good and the service was friendly. Pleasant surroundings but few tables occupied.

I tend to agree with reviewers who say that the restaurant must have seen better days: the ambience and the level of service indicate something that is a step above what you get there. Don't get me wrong, food is good, but the atmosphere suggests a different level of experience from what you actually get. Since the place is not... More

Arranged for a private cooking class with Luciano to make pesto sauce, walnut sauce, and gnocchi. Luciano was a gracious, informative, and entertaining teacher. We then had dinner there, and the food was delicious (including the foods we prepared), and the service was friendly, charming, attentive but not intrusive, and Luciano came to our table to make sure all was...

The restaurant is charming, tables look lovely, waiters very helpful. But I can't help but feel that this restaurant is living off it's old glory days when Frank Sinatra and other celebrities used to eat there. It is quite expensive. The night we ate there the clientele were well heeled, quite young locals. The food was acceptable, nothing we ate... More

Amazing pasta and seafood dishes in a beautiful old fashioned setting. Pesto pasta is best of its kind

Nice dining room with interesting and engaging service but the food is pretty average. Lots of suggestions for "specialties" but none of them really impress. Initially very welcoming but the free glass of Prosecco was corked. Took a while to explain this as the whole thing is very formulaic. Ceiling is very interesting with an Olympics theme.
