A Step Back Into Old Fashioned Dinning

The old school way of service isn't a bad thing, it's welcome from time to time but with it seems to come a hefty price tag. In this instance the food was well worth it and we had a very warm welcome. Pasta was superb and the wine list - extensive does not do it justice - massive - quite... read more

Delicious pasta with seafood, tuna tartare and sherbet!I was recently in Rome, and I will say that there is not worse. Nice and friendly staff. Cook goes to posetitelm. Just like in Italy!

Services and presentation are very impressive. Lunch was not over powered with matching prices. Will definitely go back to try out the dinner menu. And hopefully one day will visit their legendary origin in S'Agata, not far from Sorrento and Positano.

Stunning restaurant, beautifully appointed, classical style. Even the bar lobby is gorgeous. Wins huge points for style, albeit a tiny OTT. Their lunch menu is reasonably priced. Bread is fab!!! One with the little cherry tomato blew me away as the flavor exploded in your mouth!!! Amuse bouche is slices of smoked King Fish with dry zucchini. Very nice.....

I went for a business lunch. The 4-course lunch was very good. Two appetizers -- grilled scallops and green pea soup, a lamb chop for entree, and a sorbet for desert... all were very good. The price wasn't very high either relative to the ingredients and quality. I heard from my business partner (not from the restaurant) that they fly... More

We were fortunate to discover this hidden gem on Level 3 of the (new) Grand Lisboa Hotel in Macau during a recent visit. We were so pleased with the excellent lunch and overall experience we had, that we told ourselves we must return from Hong Kong specifically for dinner here, soon. Let me share with you what we had, with... More

Went with a small group expecting to be blown away by the food and service. Food was definitely not very creative and playing quite sloppy for such a high profile restaurant. Serving staff though pleasant was quite unsophisticated in their service, more like a family bistro. Manager was nice but without him and his attempt to give the place some... More

Great food, great staff. We had the degustation menu. Small portions but delicious and the maitre'd Salvatore was something else. Highly recommended
