Only open since April (2016) this small and well thought out restaurant is a must. Nicola, the primary server is a very sweet, young and well informed "partner" of the owner and Chef Giuseppe. A very very talented 30 yr old who knows his food and pairings to a tee. We have not had such beautifully plated and well prepared... More

We ate good, and it was a surprisigly "solo" night, cause we were alone. Denitely surprising cause the place is worth something and deserves to be always full. Great food, and good service,

One of the best restaurants on the island. Food, drinks and the atmosphere are just perfect. The small menu shows the care and precision taken with each dish. I have been probably 6 times or more in the last 3 years and have never had any issues. The staff are just fantastic. A true gem❤️

A delightful experience. Short but very well balanced menu. Exquisite presentation and astonishing flavors. Being in a large company we managed to order almost each item and share them all. It was a real feast. We will be coming back for more that's for sure :)

We had a team dinner here, amazing food, best was still the Raviolo and for the main, everything we had was awesome. Specially the Sous vide new Zealand lamb shank and Australian beef rib-eye. The fish was also very good.

The food tasted good but unfortunately the portions were very small. Also we had to wait for long time for our main course and desert. I definitely don't recommend this restaurant

The Food was delicious, expertly presented and piping hot! The wine superbly matched with each course - and generous measures! We were able to let the chef... More
