The view is stunning with excellent service. The tasting menu is excellent. I email to the restaurant before to arrange a round table for 10 and sent them design of the cake. It was perfectly arranged when we arrived.

We ate the 5 courses tasting menu. Of the five courses, three were good two just okay! This restaurant is mentioned in the Michelin Guide so the expectations were really high but unfortunately the food didn't speak for itself. Have had better experiences in other fine dining restaurants without the Michelin Guide mention.

Made a reservation ahead of travel based on reviews found on TA. This is a beautiful location but our experience started poorly soon after arriving when a server (seemed to be a manager level man) walked up to our table with pencil and notepad, and said "ready?" We'd had zero welcome, zero introduction to the menu, zero explanation of things like the fresh fish of the day, etc. Very disappointing when dishes are priced at 15-20E for primi and 25E+ for secondo. Food was average and some dishes tasted as if had been prepared well ahead of time and reheated. Not made to order. The wines by the glass were limited in selection and were of a single local label that appeared to be rebranded wines from another producer given the mix of varietals. Why a Chardonnay as one of 3 choices of whites by the glass? Don't know. This is Italy not California. Would not recommend this location for the price.

Dear Guest,
We thank you for your review and do not agree with what you write. I think that after making the order he had our amouse-bouche at the table .... Say ready? it's a simple question of introduction to all the explanations you can ask, but only after you've read the Menu! It 'sa pity that we do not recommend our restaurant for a personal experience that judges not good, but only for you!

book in advance.
we had dinner here and it was amazing , the service is great and the food is amazing, from starters to dessert we were in food heaven. , the food is well presented and the service for each dish is top class. the wine selection is amazing but the local wines are recommended for taste and value. the price is very good too for what you get and compared to some other restaurants its much better in value, service and food and lets not forget the view.
