If you want to impress someone or have a good, tasty and fine lunch you have to go in Metamorphosis. That chef Luca and his staff are kind and super professional. Last time I had this tuna salad but anything is a good choice.

Wow, waiting for 20 minutes for menu. Asked twice then asked for the third time. We paid for our water then left. The funny thing, is when I said to the waiter it was poor service. And that would write a review on trip advisor....More
