Or food was great and the experience was awesome. In hindsight I wouldn't have taken by 3 young children just because of the price and they didn't really appreciate it like my wife and I did.

The food here was great! We did not know that the portions would be so large & it was unfortunate that our hotel did not have a refrigerator for left overs. Two adults could easily share a pasta dish. Atmosphere felt very historic. Recommended.

Went here because we read it was historic and very good steak house. Reality for me was it was an old school restaurant that doesn't try hard because they don't think they have to since they are so famous. Food was ok. Regards. Disappointed .
