I was introduced to this restaurant by a friend and the friendship has further improved as a result. It's an intimate environment with French cafe style tables and seating. Conversation is easy in this setting and people were gathered in small groups, looking very much like this was a favorite meeting and eating place. Service was friendly, but unintrusive and... More

We returned after a few weeks and were pleased to notice the reliability and consistency of both service and food quality/presentation. Again the dessert was fantastic.

So firstly the staff are great, attentive but discreet, wine glasses are kept full - overall the service is more than one expects at a so called cafe. So to the point, apart from the lack of linen this is a restuarant make no mistake, and its very good. Our group of 4 enjoyed all of our dishes which managed... More

Visited last night and oh, dear! What has been a favourite of ours for several years is now just a memory. The service was terrible, I had to go to the bar to ask for drinks, the wait staff person was downright rude and the food not what I remembered. It was just bland and lacked the finess of earlier...

Staff friendly but not that efficient. Good small wine list but not that interesting. Food was good by all reports. But there are plenty of other places that do it better I think. Shared plates and European wine abound elsewhere- the world has moved on. And maybe that's OK.

Went there as a large group. They placed us in a room by ourselves. Loved the atmosphere. It felt like being in an authentic Italian restaurant around Cinque Terre! We loved the food - tasty and in generous portions.. The desert was my favourite. The staff looked after us very well - pleasant and attentive to our needs.
