We had lunch here on a quiet mid week day because of the good TripAdvisor reviews. The food was good but expensive, great setting and good service.

I find it hard to believe that someone would rate this restaurant "terrible". Maybe on a given night the service could be lacking or the food not quite as good as another night but, terrible, no way! We started with the squid ink pasta and...More
