Don't miss this place. The food is fabulous prepared behind a glassed in kitchen for all to see the action. We had the carpacio to start and it is a meal by itself. The staff is very attentive and clearly work as a team. Our waiter Camilo recommended the Cobia entree which was cooked to perfection. Larry came by to introduce himself and offer some classic Italian desserts. By the time we left, we felt like family.

We had the Seafood Extravaganza (my name for it) for two/or more and it was excellent. We've never had anything quite like it!! It more than fed my wife and me and could have fed it least one more. We had a side of pasta with it, that was equally as good! Our waiter, Guido, enthusiastically recommended it and he hit a home run for us!! It's a little pricey, yet, well worth it!!

Had dinner here yesterday evening. With a host like Guido the evening started with a smile.
Everything fresh and tasty, not cheap but well worth it

Food is good, view is great. Nice location, although bathrooms are up the stairs 100m away in the hotel, not in the restaurant (or a waiter sent us the wrong way). Would have given it 4 or 5 stars but the head waiter (owner?) was quite obnoxious. He would not stop talking to us and at the end quite aggressively asked for a 5 star rating on TripAdvisor.

The service here is really incredible. Guido was our server but he was much more than that... he was the pilot of our culinary experience and helped us to create a customized meal for four off menu based on nothing more than a quick interview of the people at the table. He masterfully suggested some things and we completely trusted his recommendations... and we couldn’t have been more satisfied with it!

If you’re looking for a tour de force meal extravaganza, show up early evening and request to have him if possible. And trust his recommendations if you want a meal you won’t soon forget! I can’t wait to get back.
