On a rainy Saturday we walked across the street to check the enoteca for wine selections and decided to go down stairs for lunch. We had a hard time finding anyone as the restaurant was completely empty. No customers or staff. As we were about to leave a very proper waiter appeared and offered to seat us, assuring that they were indeed open. He was very friendly and attentive after we made a good Chianti Reserva selection and assured him we did not want it chilled. He explained that many Americanos staying at the adjacent hotel requested cold wine. He was relieved that we did not and was very good to us during our excellent lunch. Unfortunately, we were scheduled to meet a couple from London and hurried through coffee and desert. It was rather funny, but the waiter was visibly frustrated and disappointed that we didn't linger to savor our meal. I supposed it was insulting as if we hadn't enjoyed the food. We assured we did. Unlike many other reviewers, our meal and service was good other than that beginning and end. We weren't bothered by it, just felt like an Italian learning experience. By the way, the view was incredible. We will come back for a summer evening meal.
