Started with friendly greeting at door, waiter willing to joke with the 6 of us. Fish special great, served hot, excellent spice. Tried fellow diners veal roast.... I'll be back it was amazing. Anther thought the liver was best ever. Huge light choc cake. Best I've been to in several holidays here.

So loud we could not hear each other. Sit on the patio, not in the main Restaraunt. The liver is sensational. The steak was flavorless. Pasta was good.

We had a party of ten. Food is always good, nothing fancy. Drinks are great. Service is good. Nice place to have a romantic meal.

Welcoming from Ginger (a must!) and fabulous service from both Jerry and Jake (we've never had anything but impeccable service at SOTM!). Dinner was delicious and you cannot beat the cream brûlée with decaf latte! See you next time❤️😊❤️
