We liked this especially the sharing dessert and my son liked his lava cake. For a main course two of us had pizza and these were nice and my wife had pasta with tomato sauce which was delicious.

Peppino designed a very nice set menu for Christmas Eve. Highlights were the lobster carbonera, and the braised beef cheeks. Tender and succulent. For the appetizers and mains, we were very happy. Perhaps a touch of acid to balance the scallops (appetizer) and lobster, but...More
