I had dinner at Scorpio with my children. The food was great, and we were especially impressed by two dishes their staff recommended to us that were not on the printed menu. Very good service too. We thouroughly enjoyed the meal.

Classic Italian pasta is vegetarian so I am sure there are a variety of options and the food is well worth it.
