Came here for lunch with a party of 17. Amazing food from fish to beef liver. Tried the grilled beef liver and it was an excellent tasting dish. Had the Kappeli's house beer as well as they're celebrating 150 years of the restaurant.

Great food with a wide selection. Staff very knowledgable on the menu and wines. A little pricey but if your looking quality with fantastic wine to match, look no further. Bistro section is nice quiet and out of the way.
