“A modern gem by the sea...like a restaraunt you would find in NYC or a great city of foodies!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

The service and atmosphere first of all was impeccable and super cool. From the waitstaff attire to the stylish style of the restaraunt....to the presentation of the food: it was all so perfecto! Now to the food.... The taste and blends of each dish were outstanding. The veal and fish dishes were perfectly cooked. The octopus was particularly amazing. Bravissimo!!!!

“Its a journey, not a diner, SUPERB!!!!”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We were looking forward to Il magnolia, and it was worth the wait! They take you on an eye-opening trip with one suprise after another! Our first apetizers was a real surprise, but not to spoil the diner of following guest I leave it up to you to discover! What followed was ten superb dishes, from tuna, to scallops, to squid carbonara, to pigeon all presented in a estonisching way, we left it up to our waiter to serve accompanying wines and he did very well! The desert was also fenominal...will definetly go back! Don't hesitate it was my best restaurant experience ever!

“once more, never enough”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

A few days ago, I had dinner at Magnolia... it wasn't the first time, it won't be the last one!
As always I had the Magnolia Menu, I never order à la carte, but rather prefer the menu with many different dishes to taste. As always everything was excellent, from the appetizers (what to say about the beetroot chips with Fossa cheese mousse? they looked like red rose petals and tasted like heaven! and the freshest small green salad seasoned with avocado ice cream ) to the soup and first course (beetroot and tomato gazpacho and prawns, seafood spaghetti served in a very 'architectural' way) to the entrées (crispy sole and vegetables... gnocchi with octopus... peter's fish in a urchin's sauce.... mmmh!), to the desserts (the 'sheep and its wool', aka ricotta cheese and ile flottante, and the pineapple crepes with fennel and coconut ice cream). We had a total of 8 dishes following the appetizers, all accompanied by great European wines, in an oenologic virtual trip from Italy to France, Germany...
The skill and friendliness of Tomas and Mascia make the service airthight. The creativity and the technique of the chef make the food unforgettable. Chapeau, Mr. Faccani!

“worth of a trip”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

Creativity, best quality ingredients, very good wine list, kind and very accurate service, a lot of attention for details make this high class restaurant a must if you are in the area (is certainly worth of a couple of hours drive!). The dining room has a very nice atmosphere, thanks to the stylish, minimal furniture and tableware, and is certainly perfect for a special occasion, without being sugary romantic
