This property was an old hotel built in the 1800's and converted into a restaurant. The food and service is impeccable. Do not miss this outstanding property.

We were out bar hopping and stopped by their bar for a couple munchies. It took forever to get served. The bartenders were chatting with servers and we were ignored for a bit. We ordered drinks and were just going to get their arancini, a...More

Had a very nice lamb filled ravioli. Visited with a group of friends, they put us in a kind of private room even though we had no reservation. Everyone thought their food was excellent. Were out of the wine and wanted and even out of...More

It is probably Italian restaurant because their serve bruschetta and a lot of pasta dishes. And let's not forget about great selection of food wines . I like also interior decor. The only thing is that it is hard to see a sign with a...More
