Had the Burgundy Beef pasta. Delicious, nicely portioned. The Peroni's tasted fresh! Tiramisu for dessert - very good.

Hands down the worst Italian food I have ever eaten. Very expensive and staff isn’t eager to help if you aren’t over dressed. Way way way to expensive for what you get. Trust me, move on.
