As we wanted to dine on St Valentine's day we booked by email several months in advance. The reply was prompt in good English; we were offered a complimentary truffle tasting aperitif prior to our meal. This took place in the pleasant cellar of their nearby truffle shop with a glass of Proseco. The... read more

For us, this was a fantastic find. The food was amazing - with great specials - many with truffles. We eat here on two nights it was so good. We opted for the dinner menus with wine - their wine choice was just perfect to complement the food. Food presentation is a divine and the tastes beyond your dreams. The... More

The food, atmosphere, wine, and staff were all incredible. They greeted you with a complimentary glass of prosecco and included other little appetizers and desserts, too. We got the sea and land tasting menus and we were totally blown away. This is definitely one of the best meals we've ever had. The staff took the time to explain your food... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were really happy with our dinner there. There were 2 smallish rooms and the decor is sophisticated but not stuffy with wine bottles all round the walls. They immediately gave us each a complimentary glass of prosecco which is always a nice way to start and a delicious amuse bouche. They have a... More

Visited for an anniversary treat after seeing the great reviews. Easy to book via email. It lived up to every expectation! Beautiful, romantic place, cosy and dimly lit.
