“One of the best in the region.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

The service is attentive, the decor is actually more formal then you would think for what they called there casual dinning Our first experience here was so good that we returned the following evening.

We enjoyed everything we had off the regular menu, as well as the Chef’s Suggestions.
Highly Recommend: the black fig, prosciutto and mozzarella salad ~ the ossobuco was bone-sucking good ~ both the tagliatelle with shrimp and mushroom and the papardelle with lamb ragu were delicious and cooked just right ~ the warm octopus salad was by far the freshest and tastiest we’ve had. The beef carpaccio with ricotta was like nothing we’ve ever tasted and definitely the best we ever had.

We highly recommend dinning here you will not be disappointed

“Food was good but overpriced many other better restaurants at this price in the area.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

I had the lamb chops and my wife had a pasta dish. We also had caprese and smoked salmon starters. Without wine (we were too tired from traveling) the tab was €65. You can eat better than here for the money. The wait staff was kind and professional, spoke English too. Good if you don't feel like going out and you are staying here, but I'd never stay at this hotel again.
