Impressive food and presentation style! We tried the 5 course signature dish, especially impressive was the pasta with fish stock and scallops + the chocolate foundant with milk ice cream... Mmm

Very much enjoyed our meal here: good fine, good wine list, friendly and efficient service, pleasant room. The food here is quite traditional, and nicely presented. We had the six course traditional menu at 80 euros.

Excellent experience. I was a little worried about the fact that the restaurant had a Michelin Star - based on the show and pomp you sometimes get in these places. Fortunately this was like have dnner in your favourite aunt's dining room (Wish I had an aunt who cooked this well). We had a delicious starter - Selection of seafoods which was crowned by a roasted scallop and sea bass with white truffle. Mains were also very good.

Too full for dessert.

Interesting wine list - but would have preferred to know which bottles came in half size in a separate section. Also would have liked to see which if any wines were available by the glass.

Otherwise a near perfect evening - would definitely come again when in the area.

It was really easy to book over the internet. We were made to feel very welcome. The ambiance is marvellous and the staff were lovely. We had the fish-based tasting menu and they were happy to adapt it for me to exclude prawns. All the food was superb. We have eaten in some wonderful restaurants all over the world and this tiny little place is right up there with the best of them.

This is a good retaurant. it has a lovely room with unusual furnishings and lighting. The menu is that rarity - a list from which one wishes to try many thnings. The wine list is excellent, and as is the case in so much of Italy, the mark-up is thankfully conservative when compared to the userous 300 per cent plus mark-up that is so criminally the norm in England, thus making it possible to consider ordering wines one might not usually consider in restaurants. Our only quibble is that the scallops starter was a little too heavily salted. We have noticed this tendancy elsewhere in northern Italy. Do they like more salt than we are used to in England? By the way, do ask for a Prosecco as you look over the menu - it was the best we have ever tasted. Recommended.
