The food served here was delicious. There wasn't as much selection as I expected. The service was excellent. Overall the price was the only problem ($$$$).
This place was recommended by our hotel concierge and it didn't disappoint. We wanted to try the "Florence" steak experience we had heard about and this was a great place to do it.
