Not my first visit, but definitely my last. The location is wonderful; the dining room is pleasant; the staff warm and friendly; the food not so good. I ordered the house salad with Italian Chianti dressing and chicken piccata. The salad arrived and it looked lovely, fresh dark greens, with garden vegetables. The dressing, however, looked like a tub of... More

Well worth a visit, proper food served by attentive staff. Lovely setting especially if you bag a window seat. Not the cheapest place, however you pay for the quality and portion size so yes it's well worth giving it a try.

Wonderful view, our waitress took care of all 12 with us without one bit of attitude..food was good to great. I guess the Monti Cristo was a favorite, I had meatball sandwhich and it was also very good. But the waitress made our visit worth navigating through a construction zone to get there!

We walked through the lovely backstreets to get here at night it was a beautiful setting on the water. not too upmarket but just casual, food was good and the staff were nice also. It is a bit out of town which suited us near our Inn.
