“A place to go once...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

They propose two services for dinner, hence we chose the second one... at 11:30 pm! However, when we arrived we were informed that the table which we booked, outdoors, was still taken. So, after a few minutes waiting a a sitting area - and no drinks proposed to us - we were offered a table indoors, a little too tight for the seven of us.
We chose the wine without the help of a sommelier, who never came to our table. The choice was good, though, so I assume that the wine list is well picked. However, throughout the dinner the wine was seldom poured for us, and the white wine was too far to be reached, sitting in it's ice bucket.
The menu was plainly obvious, the usual Italian typical choices. Some of them missing. Food was good, even thought it took forever. We had to complain twice about the delay.
Ambiance was beautiful, full of well-dressed Brazilians and celebrities. Service was clearly overwhelmed.
