I love the caprese!! It’s actually a Napolean, a layered Caprese with thin bread/lavosh as one layer, then mozzarella, then tomato... repeat, repeat. They then drizzle pesto instead of leafy basil. It’s beautiful, creative and tasty. I enjoyed a delicious mushroom and sausage risotto while...More

Sitting on outside patio is best to experience the views and the people watching coming on and off dinner/entertainment cruises. House specials always worthwhile. Wine pricing can catch you if you are not selective.

We did not have children. The place was good for kids. They will love it, there is a lot to take in. There were plenty of families there. You can get small portions for kids. The staff there were very flexible with the menu.
