We went to this restaurant for our honeymoon and were not impressed. The food, wine and water (24 euro! ) are way overpriced. We started our dinner with a Spumante which should have been complimentary and was presented as if it was going to be,...More

This experience has weakened my confidence in Michelin star ratings. There were a number of times I should have walked out during the 3 hours it took to eat Arnolfo's smallest tasting menu. I wish I had left, no matter the cost, because I would...More
