Really a very big disappointment. For a Michelin star restaurant this definitely did not deliver. Food was nothing special, wait staff did not remember who ordered what and most importantly the food was pretty but not good. Again, this place is highly overrated. Don't GO

Siamo veramente dispiaciuti. Ma il cliente confonde ristorante o data di visita. In ogni caso gli auguriamo le cose migliori.
