This was really an experience that I will really repeat. Food? OK, but there are better places, the best thing of this restaurant is the owner: kind and sensible, that knows when the customer is not happy, and what to do to improve its dinner experience.
Go, it is good.

Came here on multiple occasions with friends; staff and owners were very welcoming for a start. The design of the restaurant was beautiful, managing to combine elegance with a modern feel both inside and outside. The owners were friendly, very accommodating and allowed for a lot of flexibility with dishes. Staff were well trained and professional, we did not have to ask for anything, nor did they bother you. Menu was comprehensive and contained a lot of classic dishes as well as some of their own originals in addition to some delightful twists on classics. The wine menu was exceptional with a choice to match whatever you had ordered. If you're travelling through the area, this is a place definitely worth stopping to eat!

Gazpacho was good, the waiter was nice. The outside setting is quite nice. Got bitten by many mosquitos.

The chef here is so confused. I was offered curry (In Italy!?) to start or some burnt crisps (potato chips). Why would any self respecting Italian chef offer curry!? I should have walked out then.

Unbelievably slow service - there were 3 floor-staff for 4 tables - why so slow!? I had to tell them to light the candles - lots of mosquitos / bring bread / bring oil - nice waiter - that was it. Service 2/10.

No menu in English - well I guess that can be forgiven.

I had Aubergine caviar with Tuna tartar (why are you calling it caviar? - it has nothing to do with sturgeon or rowe). The flavours did not go well together at all - no citrus flavour, really bad. However this was like parma ham and melon as a combination compared to my wife's food - salmon coated with sesame / poppy seed with onion jam. Maaaaaate? What has your chef been smoking? This is Italy - home of fantastic produce, simple flavours and authenticity. This had none of these. Technically, the food looked good - but 90 euros down and what a crap meal.

The owner should be ashamed - this is genuinely the worst meal I've ever had the luxury of spending good money on. I feel sorry for the staff.

This is the first time I felt comfortable in a stylish, elegant restaurant. The waiters and the owner took care of us with honest attention and kindness. The food is lovely and the place is clean and amazing. My family loved this place and we will certainly return.

Had some difficulties finding dishes for all. May be they are aiming a little bit high. But we managed some how. Dishes we ordered were "ok", part of it because we had to go with simple ones or change ingredients (appreciate their flexibility).
They had a mistake with one of our dishes(forgot to prepare it and brought one we didn't order). That happens. I liked the way the owner took care of it ( apologize straight forward and took it of the bill). Did not like the chef (may be it was him) that came a bit angry with the dish (too late and after we told them we gave up this one).
