A perfect location is matched by competence in the kitchen. Staff were generally attentive, but inexperience showed at times. This is a great venue for that long lingering summer lunch - book a table to be sure of getting the right spot.

The food is very good especially the pasta and deserts! The service is very careful and efficient! The restaurant is better than the current ranking on Tripadvisor

Went there for business dinner. The service was excellent, punctial and fast. I ate tuna as main dish which was very very good but a bit pricey. The restaurant also has a nice view of the docks and the wine list is quite decent.
