Booked on the day and they accommodated us. Amazing view for dinner. Lovely ambience. Delicious food. Tempted to give 5 out of 5 but portion size was a little on the small side so giving 4; but it was very tasty.

Located in the Hotel Castello where we were staying the setting alone made us reserve a late table on the front row. Paul was our waiter. Had we chosen someone to be our waiter Paul would have been our choice. Gracious, helpful, and enjoyable conversation....More

.... actually I don't know if you have been a guest of our restaurant or the one nearby. But one thing is certain: our waiters are well educated and professionals, and the countless testimonials, even on this same platform, certify it. Matteo
