Had the most wonderfl lasagne here on a recent visit. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and professional. The restaurant is quite modern in decor so lacks a little athmosphere but could'nt fault the food.

I have read other reviews but can only speak about what we found. The staff were friendly and spoke reasonable Engliish. The service was not as slow as we thought it would be from other reviews.

Food was ok, but the waitress who served us was an absolute disgrace. She was down right rude when taking our orders and treated us like like dirt because we didnt speak italian, and made a cutting her throat gesture to one of the other equally as useless waitresses (who got a great laugh out of it) while taking our...

I am very surprised to see all the negative reviews, because we had good Food. The service was slow, but friendly. I thought it was good that one could choose to sit inside or outside, and it was very popular among families the evening we were there.

I have never come across such rude people as the staff and particularly the man who claimed to be the manager. Two of the waiting staff were plain ignorant and rude to us and it would be fair to say anti-children (one of whom was ill and too tired to move and the other never left her chair). When I... More

As we strolled around and viewed different menus we decided to eat here. Our waiter spoke fluent english and was very talkative as he did a great job during our meal. we ordrered a couple of pasta dishes which were fine. We sat at a table right by the water just a beautiful setting.

Every evening in summer this restaurant is full. It is OK, but all is so strange. Many many stress is here, waiters are running between the tables for all time. ..it disturbs guests. The food was OK.

The restaurant is right next to the Ponte and some tables overlook he water, a great position, and this is where we were seated. Service quick and efficient, with nice friendly staff. The wine we chose was good and not overly expensive. Food very tasty, the risotto, was delicious and the carbonara very good also. a really nice dining experience.

I had the worst Panna Cotta ever (it doesn't even deserve that name). Absolutely not eatable. The cheapest one from the supermarket still would be better. Very bad service too. Was a pitty spending time and money there.
