Busy for a Monday lunch time which must be a good sign. Waiting staff were friendly, salad was delicious and plentiful. Over 50 choices of salad so something for everyone, all of which were huge portions, no one left hungry! Will return.

Very nice place with tasty Italian food. I recommend to book a table in advance. The service was very fast and friendly, food (salad, pasta and tiramisu) and wine were tasty and delicious. I paid €40 for a dinner for two. Thanks! Highly recommended

This has been the best gnocchi I tried and the salads and the deserts are amazing. Generous dish sizes and fresh ingredients are a deadly combination in any restaurant. It can be very crowded but that's ok if you have a reservation.

Not really even from the glass room outside. It’s tucked into the harbour. Nice place though.
