Had a meet and greet here for my daughters weddding guests and drinks and canapés on the day of the wedding.The owner Paolo only interested in his takings. The rest of his staff were superb. Such a shame i couldn't recommend him

Nice waterfront dining, also good upstairs inside dining for dinner or Sunday brunch. We had an amazing cheese platter for a brunch. Nice seafood and traditional Italian pasta. Always a favorite of ours.
