Had a dinner here and enjoyed the food. The general price level was higher than average and especially the wines had high price multiples. The unfortunate coperto carge was 2,50 p.p. which is a kind of redicilous.

The old restaurant where plaster and wooden beams a glimpse of the original features, has been transformed into a stylish restaurant, thus creating an atmosphere which is fully reflected in the cuisine that is offered.
Our gastronomic follow the seasonal cycle, drawing all the time, to the extent that they do not offend the tradition, the innovative imagination.
Eye-catching and unique dishes, but the denominator of fresh fish and catch.

I and my staff are dedicated every day to our work in the belief that the
