The hotel where we were staying recommended this nearby restaurant and it did not disappoint. We went with our family of 5, all pretty demanding foodies. We were starved and ordered a lot of extra side dishes to share, including the spinach cannelloni and cheese...More

We had dinner here and it was very good. Small place, only 6-8 tables al fresco, casual, but very good food.
