This was a sentimental journey for me. I was here sixty-one years ago when the restaurant was a bistro built by the parents of the present owner. (We would dance to scratchy records and nurse a Peroni beer the entire evening. Sgr Dilucca didn't seem...More

Stunning location, but downhill from there. Service non-existent, staff unfriendly, monosyllabic & disinterested. The food is adequate, but nothing special. Having poured our wine, my husband noticed that there was lipstick on the rim of his glass. I pointed this out to the waiter who,...More
