Fantastic meal & attentive service. My favorite dish was the veal cooked in wine sauce. Meal was ended with deliciously light & refreshing lemon ice cream.

Expected great things but did not deliver. The food was good but the service was poor - waiters were disinterested, inhospitable and uncaring. Good wine but the sommelier was unhelpful. Not a great experience.
