The setting is nice as well as the service. The food was not spectacular. the plates presentation was very nice but the food tasting for me was not good. My spectations were far beyond what i had since its a michellin star restaurant.

Personal service from Elia and Matteo Rizzo makes a visit unforgettable. We had the tasting menu with wine paring. The food was exceptional, visually stunning and a great taste. The price is reasonable for the experience (including being seated by the chef).

The food here was truly wonderful. The restaurant is elegant yet modern, and we received excellent service, particularly from the sommelier.
