Having been the previous four years, this was our best experience. The food was excellent and copious. The wine cellar was excellent and reasonably priced. The director and his staff were all attentive and professional. The entertainment and midnight drink was very good.

Enjoyed a good meal with friends, service seemed just a bit off although the food was very good. I enjoyed the Pici Pasta it was just enough spice to make it a bit spicy just better then other dishes we have tried in the area.

They set up a table on the lawn on the warm evening we were there. Lots of activities around us...families, groups and other couples. The menu is sophisticated, traditional and delicious.
