This was by far our best dinner in Italy over several years/holidays. I'm not pretending to be a food-critic and so some might share a different opinion. We ordered the menu presented on the leaflet in the lobby (menu avaible from 9/9 til 19/9). exquisitely fresh and tastefull (fish)food like paintings on a plate. we enjoyed 5 courses for a... More

The best raw fish appetizers not just in Italy, in many other part of the world!!! So refined, so delicate mouth and eyes pleasing in every sense!!! After 20 some years, I finally asked the owner who the chef is as we were praising him for the consistency of their food all these years. I continued to say I would... More

The restaurant was much better, in any sense, in the previous location. Even the quality of food has decreased, not just the atmosphere.

Service is perfect too. On weekends they also have live music (piano bar) which contriobuites to the nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, this comes at a price: this is clearly not... More

After searching in vain for hours for a nice place to eat we accidentally stumbled over this place. The menu looked appealing but expensive - but we decided to try it out as we were very hungry. That was the right thing to do! We were seated outside under sails at a beautiful table with candles. Although open, the setting... More
