I was staying at the hotel next to the restaurant with my 2 sisters. We ate at the restaurant almosr every evening. It was very convenient to arrive to the hotel and just go downstairs to have dinner. Good was very good for the prize, waiters were very cordials.

Wonderful Italian style restaurant. You can eat at a small bar if you want or inside or at the new glass extension which means you can watch the world pass by. Lovely Osso Bucco. Huge Fish Soup servings. Great service.
