Lunch pasta was tasty and well priced . Attentive service. Parking in area can be tight. Patio area in summer is a nice addition.

Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, casual, well executed fares at a reasonable price make this a restaurant worth repeat visits. We would like to come back when there is live music playing. I especially enjoyed the calabrese pizza.

Never stayed there but from the info on the web both are great hotels but I think the Palace is superior. It then comes down to the cost.
