Planned to have main meal but no WiFi and had to do some work so had to leave and find another restaurant. Will try again when they have WiFi.

Very 'proud' waiter took our order with a bit of disdain. We ordered ravioli stuffed with lobster which was good; but had been left for the sauce to get a thin skin layer over them. Our friend had the seafood spaghetti which says was good...More
