Bad service (long waiting time, wrong wine delivered) inefficient staff. Food quality under average, under expectations.

We were a group of five. We ate only sea food and everything was just excellent: prawns, shells, vongole, fritto misto... The space is pleasant and the waiter nice and discreet. We enjoyed the evening very much.
