Good food - great staff

Had a salad (with citrus), flatbread fig pizza (be careful of the hot peppers) and the chicken (with potatoes and veggies). All tasty!

All restaurants have off nights and obviously we hit one after reading strong reviews as well as recommendations from friends. Short story; we arrived at 8:05 it was 20% filled and by 9:35 we still hadn't even been served dessert. Long story; waited 15 mins to order a drink, another ten to receive it, ordered two appetizers, the polenta came... More

Romantic setting under trees on back patio, delicious food, homemade pastas. Our server was not very good, but hopefully he will get better! We would go back and try it again because the ambience and food were lovely.

Right in the middle of town and walking distance from our hotel (The Emerald Iguana). Not cheap, but good food and nice service.

I had the lasagna and it was delicious. A smaller portion(yay) with homemade pasta. Perfect combinations of cheese, delicious sauce. Yum. Great atmosphere. Excellent attentive service. We learned later that there is a patio so ask for seating there. Lovely.
