Although reservations are required, we were lucky to get a seat so reserve in advance to assure indoor/outdoor seating seating. Festive atmosphere with good vibes, great service and food..

Went to celebrate my future son-in-law birthday. Antipasto octopus and fried breaded cheese. Main Fish (al cartoccio), fillet steak, pasta con vongole and pasta with tomato sauce. Well prepared, service impeccable ,however a bit expensive especially the fish. All in all enjoyable .
