One of the worst Italian restaurants , it used to be good but today was very hideous food. Expensive and not worthy. Sorry to say that. The only good thing is the service and the souflet .

The restaurant is located in the old part of the city & somehow is maintaining its elegance in the food offered ,or the quality of dishes.

Guys this place its half as a good as it used to be, and it has become very expensive to eat there. There is far a much restaurants choice around, and by the way their swordfish is just Kanad, our local fish and not Italian at all.

Used to be my favorite, but was disappointed during my last visit. It looks like the chef has changed and some of the staff as well. We had paella and grilled Salmon.
