We went here on a Saturday night but as we had already had a big and late lunch we weren't that hungry and only had one course, unfortunately... It tasted wonderful and I would have loved to have a 4 or 5 course meal here. Also price wise that would have been a better deal. The restaurant is on a... More

It's very difficult to find a place that's not a tourist trap especially in city centres. If you're willing to let go , you can experience a unique gastronomical journey but a word of advice - just ask them to recommend what the locals would eat Enjoy!

A very welcome change from the standard pizza/pasta fare available in abundance Being slightly off centre it is quieter and calmer where you can enjoy an interesting European/Sicilian menus of well cooked food. The wine list is huge and therefore accommodates most tastes. Marco and Elizabeth give impeccable service which is both correct and friendly.

The food was sublime and the staff attentive and professional. The waiter intercepted our secondi as they were about to be served when he realised my husband's meal was different to his order. This resulted in a longer wait which he understood perfectly as my husband regularly cooks risotto at home. I had a fettuccine with seafood and the flavour... More

Amazing food and lovely staff! The tall slender waiter with glasses (didn't get his name) was very attentive and helpful! 5 star experience, only wish we were staying longer so could revisit!

We went on recommendation for the tasting menu, which was indeed very lovely. They were also very helpful in choosing a main course for our son, which took him out of his pasta comfort zone! Very attentive and helpful service made this a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel we stayed in. The place is beautiful trendy, and the food had a great mix of flavors and textures. The reason for the single dot rating is simply Deception!!! As we were finishing our second course we witnessed the waiter filling up the "bottled" water from the tap at the bar. Then they... More
