“Hugely overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Our party of 6 adults ages 48 to 59, visited on the recommendation of concierge at our hotel

It was extremely disappointing for the value and the service was very slow

Menu very fussy. We had risotto which was far too cheesy with peas. There was zero presentation to the dish, just a dollop of risotto on cheap looking plates
I would have been embarrassed to serve this to my friends if I cooked this at home, never mind paying 17 euros for this dish

The wine was mega expensive, averaging maybe 50 euros for a bottle

If you are looking for traditional Italian cooking such as spaghetti bologna see, penne Arrabiatta, do not come here
I have dined in Michelin star restaurants so I know what good food looks like and my other friends do too and all of us felt that the dining experience was poor

We paid 270 euro for very average food and felt let down.
Sorry

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Went there following a local friend's recommendation. The food was good, the service was good and the view was good. It's a good restaurant as you would understand but to me it's nothing that would make me going there again and again if i lived locally.
