Our business group arrived to find our reservation was placed at a half circular table that was far too small for a group. Once seated we waited about ten minutes before the waiter came to our table. We weren't offered a drink prior and were...More

Good ambience and good service. The main course was lamb shank and chicken Penne. My disappointment was that the food was served on cold plates. When I mentioned to the waiter, he explained that hot plates will cause injury to the server ! I wish...More
