Very good dishes, good service, short waiting time. Nice interior. We have a good time spent! We were searching for a restaurant during a business trip, found this one because of good reviews, and we have not been disappointed.

Great service, we had to change from a booking from two to three people - they easily accommodated the change when we turned up despite being fully booked. Very friendly service. Delicious appetiser selection and great primi and secondi main courses. Excellent seafood selection. The turbot with pistachio was amazing. Excellent cedar sorbet with delicious tasting strawberries.

We have been there to celebrate our wedding with all our relatives and friends. I had one of the best fish meals I got in my life, considering the quality, freshness, and also quantity of the food. Fish dishes were superb, but also other plates, like the wedding cake, were delicious. The owners and workers are extremely polite and friendly... More

Very good seafood restaurant in Brianza. In a nice villa converted into a restaurant, not far from Monza and in a residential area, you can enjoy a large selection of seafood in a relaxed, elegant and traditional atmosphere. It's like being invited by your friends. They also have a nice backyard garden probably used in summertime or for parties. Service... More

This week, I took my customer there for a discussion over lunch. It was at his recommendation, when I asked about a seafood place around the Agrate area. It turned out to be such an amazingly delightful experience overall that I can't but give it the best ever rating. The location of the restaurant is deceptive. Situated in a small... More

This restaurant is among the "hystorical" places in this area. The location is very beautiful in spring and summer, because of the garden. Inside it needs a refurbishing to eliminate "the old fashioned restaurant" style, tipical of the Eighties. Personally, I found the food too elaborated and heavy to digest. Average service, a little bit too obsequious. Expensive for the... More
