Visited for lunch, so impressed booked for an evening meal two days later. Pasta and pizza menus comprehensive and a shorter menu of Italian mains. All food was freshly prepared and delicious. Staff were friendly and efficient. Probably best to book for an evening visit.

Food was actually great, but when the bill came the waitstaff pressured us into tipping. Felt fishy but we did so anyways. Got back to the hotel and the concierge immediately told us we were ripped off. She said she was a waitress and would...More
