Had a great grilled fish, well cooked and presented. The starter with olives, tuna and warm bread was very good, soup, main course and expresso included in the menu. The presentation is great and the waiters are very nice and helpful, overall great experience.

It's hard to be objective judge of the place when you are the part of the large group with limited menu. Place look appealing with nice interior design and I can imagine can be romantic for the dinner. With the limited menu of two choices...More
