You will want to reserve a table at this popular spot - it is worth planning ahead for. We had some wonderful pizza and pasta in the bar (which is beautiful), and next time, we will make reservations for the main dining room.

We ate here twice in a week's stay. Oysters on the half shell were lovely, seafood stew was fabulous, and the pasta is fantastic. Nice atmosphere that is cosy but you're not staring at your neighbor's salad. Second night the steak was ok but the...More
