“Very good food, but disappointing service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Saltimbocca was delicious, the vegetables were very good and the potatoes were OK. The decor was nothing special, but it was nice. The tablecloths were linen as well as the napkins. A candle on each table added to the atmosphere and the house wine by the glass was nice. The only disappointing thing was the service. It was not personable, or attentive, and it seemed to be the same with everyone. They only had one waiter and an assistant for a Friday night so maybe that was the problem. It is located near the convention center, but they would have to improve their service before I would go back again.

“Very good and a short distance from the Marriott.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Main courses cost about 20 euro but the preparation is excellent. Both the veal scallops with sage butter and the beef steak with cognac pepper sauce were very good. The mozzarella tomato salad and the vegetable soup with truffles were also very good and cost under 10 euros each. They have a covered outside eating area and nice inside area, both with white tablecloths.
