A lovely elegant dining room inside a historic palazzo....beautiful artwork, lovely setting, elegant tables....after that, it's downhill. My husband and I spent New Year's Eve dinner here. We were chuckling the whole time about expecting a romantic, quiet, elegant dinner to celebrate the New Year, and we couldn't wait to escape.
Food was OK, not particularly good. Fish dishes were very "fishy"; rest was just ok. IN all fairness, service was excellent. The dining room was lit super brightly-blinding in fact; who wants to have an elegant dinner with spotlights in your face? The one candlestick on our table was wasted because the room was so uncomfortably bright. But the absolute worse part was the "live music" they advertised. It consisted of a table of people who took turns eating and singing, with the most absolute horrid voices and sounds....the dinner music played via recorded radio in between the live performances, was so loud that my husband and I had to use sign language...this was the dinner music. Not a soul got up to dance and one woman spent her night signaling to stab herself as the rest of her table laughed. The "music" was brash, deafening, horrible sounding and the singer was an absolute disaster--it was really bad. We escaped right after midnight...disappointing night which cost us 120 Euros plus tips per person----that's about $350--at least we had a few laughs about it. Outside in the piazza there was a free fireworks performance and a fun band....happy new year!
