“Great staff and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We rented the top room for 26 people and it was a great experience. We had a preset menu which was just perfect.

“Great food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This was our second time dining at this restaurant, having been referred on our 1st trip by the concierge at our hotel. We would never have found it otherwise; as noted in other reviews it is on the second floor of a nondescript building (you really have to know where it is!), but just look up, you'll see the sign. We had friends joining us this time, one of whom was a vegetarian. The service was excellent. Our waiter was very pleasant, knowledgable and helpful in assisting our vegetarian friend with menu choices. The food was delicious, well prepared. Overall, a very enjoyable evening, and we would definitely return.

“Good food but dodgy service on payment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were referred by our hotel concierge and the food was good, but expensive for the portion size. The risotto was by far the best I have ever tasted, so if you go be sure to try this as they are famous for it. We also had the wild boar ragu pasta, lobster gnocchi and the chicken special. All were good but I would not order any again. The view was beautiful from one side of the restaurant facing the canal, and ugly from the other so be sure to request a table facing the canal! When we went to pay and requested separate bills, the server was a dick about it and was very flustered and confused. It was good, but don't need to go back.

“So good, went twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Wonderfully authentic Italian food served beautifully. The center window seat with the pillows is very romantic with a gorgeous view of the canal. Wild boar ragu and the fish, all excellent.
