Two different nights and it couldn't be better. Both nights.

There is an outdoor terrace, which is very popular with the locals. But being an exceedingly hot and busy day, we just wanted relaxation, quiet and cool. So we got seated inside with the air conditioning. Seems you can keep going back inside for some cavernous distance, almost all the way back we took our table, and it was quiet, cool and relaxed. Both nights.

Service was superb, wonderfully paced. The servers both nights seemed to sense when and how to order each course. The pasta appetizer first night was perfect. The second night pasta with lobster, out of this world. The lamb main course was to die for ... and the cheesecake dessert; I am serious in saying I haven't tasted cheesecake like that for thirty years. All the dishes were seasoned subtly and wonderfully.

They have some unique and sultry cocktails, from the bar. The wine is excellent, just go with whatever the server thinks best.

The menu changes regularly so my only guess is no matter what you order, it will be an experience unto itself.

Quite a surprise, this one. We went as it wasn't too far from our hotel and open on Sunday night. We planned a light dinner as we were aware they did pizza and had had a large lunch. But we couldn't resist the dinner menu and had a second large meal of the day. One of the best pieces of thinly sliced, rare cooked beef I have eaten with a surprise of raw artichoke and shaved cheese. Who knew that combination would work?
