Very nice Italian menu with a full bar and moderately large (expensive) wine list. Service is excellent, though food comes almost to quickly. Servers are knowledgeable and most are bilingual. Pleasant environment

The restaurant location and the staff were perfect in every way. The view of the marina and the staff were really friendly and accommodating. However we didn't enjoy the food quite so much. The calamari appetiser was not what we expected and lacked seasoning and...More
