I came here based on the excellent trip advisor reviews. It did not disappoint. Excellent food. Professional and friendly wait staff. Pasta reminiscent of those ive had in italy. Ambience is perfect for the busy area - you forget you are downtown. Well done !...More

Great food in a pleasant garden setting. Eat outside if the weather is nice. The pasta with favs beans was delicious. Limited, expensive wine list. Good service.

Lovely place located very near the cruise ship port. Great place to run away from too many tourists. Love the food and the service. Service was a bit slow but very friendly. Portions are quite big. Couldn't fit dessert.
