We just had a starter in this place as we booked the main meal in another place but this address deserves a stop. Nice room with good ambiance.

The food, the open wine and the coffee were excellent! Only disappointment was the appetizers were a little on the small side. It should have been three scallops and three gambas, not two. The main course and the desert were appropriate. The pricing was fair. The service was very good, and the staff were all friendly and accommodating and made... More
