The food is excellent but the service is the worst part. I order a glass of wine and the waiter does not allow me to taste it, so rude. Then nobody ask me is everything is ok. Then I have to request the menu because nobody offer me. Finally I do not recommend it.

A marvelous appetizer tray is offered immediately. Be aware that there is a charge, but the selection is terrific (olives, breads, eggplant parmesan, carpaccio, etc.); surprisingly, when we wolfed down the carpaccio, more was brought to the table. Good wine list, with choices from all continents; we had a nice Malbec from older vines in Argentina. All the usual suspects... More

On entering the restaurant you are welcomed by an army of waiters and senior staff - I got nervous immediately: the customers are to pay for this huge staff. Serving was friendly and efficient - and food was fine - nothing special, but quite OK. Suggested wine was from abroad and expensive - and so was the food. So quality... More

What you take and what you pay is not well balanced. Expensive! Paid 650 euro for 5. And almost a few shared starters not to much food. Still you may try a mixed cousine clean and good service

This is an Italian high level. Pasta is cooked the South of Italy's way. Fish wonderful. The location is fine. The price can vary, depending the fish you choose. Wines are a little expensive.

Fantastic pizza and a gorgeous bottle of Argentinian Malbec came to R230 but the service was excellent, which is a rarity in these parts, and the restaurant atmosphere was very good. Won't be a regular, but perfect for a nice treat.
