The atmosphere is European and friendly. We enjoyed a window seat which allowed us to see all the Christmas lights decorating the town. the servings were generous, I tried, but could not finish the delicious lasagne.

The food was wonderful and we loved the intimate space. In a busy "tree lighting" time in the town, this little restaurant was a fabulous find. The staff was friendly and the experience was perfect!

They did warn us that a wedding party of 30 was just seated and it would be awhile before we got our food. However, it didn't look like they had enough wait staff or cooks to handle the crowd and I'm sure the wedding party had made advance reservations. All the restaurants had big crowds before Christmas and they seemed... More

Went for lunch were the first in. Service was a little slow to begin with but food was excellent. Nice quiet atmosphere. Would be great for a romantic dinner for two.

We ate Christmas dinner here. For a tourist town, it's quite amazing so few restaurants are open on Christmas, but that's another story. We've eaten here before, so knew it would be good. For Christmas, they had pretty much a fixed menu with several entree choices. I had the schnitzel and my wife had the mushroom ravioli. It was interesting... More

Décor is old world and quite cozy. Service was really good....friendly and prompt. Excellent appetizers! The menu selection was wide enough that everyone with me found something they wanted to order. We all enjoyed our entrees. The price was reasonable for a resort town...under $100 before tip, which included 3 entrees, 2 appetizers and 4 alcoholic beverages.

Though this adorable looking Italian restaurant looks like a charming European bistro, it was not recommended but our hotel or cab driver. We thought we would give it a try anyway. I am sorry we did. Twice we attempted to eat at this place but we were like others walking out as we entered...the manager on duty appeared to be... More
