Good but not amazing

Seafood plate is really rich, fresh and nice, while all the rest is of quite average level. Good for Sunday family or friends lunch if you are living in the neighborhood, but as tourist I'd prefer to be in less "well done" but more autentic place. Just to blame myself for not preparing for the... read more

Made to feel unwelcome because of my wheelchair. The food was not good and the service was at best unpleasant plus the bill of 98.00euro left me wondering 'why did I pay for that'.

Our expectations were exceeded. Wish we had bigger appetites. Looking for French and Seafood this restaurant delivered. It is classy, with prices to match but absolutely worth it. It is not over the top, it is value for money in every way. Great ambience inside and feels French so that hit the mark. The service was fantastic and helpful yet... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here on 14 April 2015. It's important to get reservations here. The restaurant is popular for a very good reason. It's good. I can't speak to disappointing experiences anyone else had, but I can attest to our own experience. The waiter was very courteous and helpful. And the food was excellent. I... More

We ate here as we wanted to have a typically French seafood meal for my birthday. We were seated outside initially but the combination of the fierce wall mounted heaters and the smokers meant we asked to be moved indoors. The interior has a good atmosphere and decor. We opted for as main courses the lobster salad and the lobster... More

My wife and I have eaten here before but the Friday before Easter we were very disappointed. My wife had the same dish as a previous visit, but it was not of the same quality, this being the lobster pasta dish, last time she loved the sauce, this time there was very little sauce. I had the turbot which was... More

Very good experience! We had the tapas and the seabass, and everything was so good. Surprised by the seafood tapas, as we were both expecting it to be meat, but it was excellent. Maybe a bit on the pricy side, but its Nice..

Adding to previous reviews from fellow tripadvisers: we had an excellent dinner in the boccaccio. Beautiful fresh oysters and one of the best Paellas we had in a long time. Big portion, lavish and fresh seafood incredients, nicely presented with attentive service. Yes it is on the expensive side but good value for what you pay and a wine list... More

on the basis that if we pay we will get friendly and polite service? my third review; again excellent quality food BUT why spoil the food with the aroma of arrogance? why can't the pasta starter be served in a smaller portion even if the price remains the same why do I keep returning expecting a different result? well top...

I love this restaurant. The last time we went there, my wife ordered the steak and I ordered the Spaghetti Vongole. The steak was about as big as her head and my pasta plate was big enough to serve a group of 3 or 4 people! Very tasty and satisfying meal! I would say this is one of the best... More
