We ate here in July and were surprised by some of the negative reviews....I personally found the service impeccable, and when my order came out wrong it was rectified immediately ..mistakes happen I am not going to slate this restaurant for that, my replacement starter took a few minutes but again, being cooked from scratch that's ok, I would have...

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor where it got good reviews. And I must agree, the place was really good. Food was great, ate some really good pasta. Prices are ok. A bit higher than normal.

Very good food. Slightly more expensive than other places but worth a visit. The only negative was the buzz from the restaurant next door. It killed the mood.

Went here early evening to have a change from Greek cuisine. The service and food we're excellent. Pizzas were thin and crusty and the meatball pasta was rich and full of flavour. Nice to be set back a little from the crowded waterfront in the shade with a cool breeze.

Fine and good food. Good quality in general, but the food missed something to make it excellent. Nice place and decent service.
