Italian
A coastal Italian restaurant inspired by the colourful and diverse cuisine of Italy’s scenic seaside regions. From Campania through Amalfi and Puglia to Southern Sicily, flavours vary along the coast. A menu representing these cooking traditions is proudly served in a lofty dining room, accented with nautical design and details reminiscent of a sunny maritime holiday in Italy.
With the Tyrrhenian, Ionian and Adriatic seas kissing its shores, Italy’s coastal regions have long been influenced by foreign food cultures. Our selection of crudos, salads, pastas and grilled mains reflect this diversity with bright, refreshing flavours and the use of seasonal produce.

    J'ai réservé au restaurant jeudi soir pour 17h30, journée de tempête au froid glacial. Mon amie et moi sommes arrivé aux alentours de 17h20, l'entrée n'était pas visible et aucune porte ne semblait être ouverte. J'ai téléphoné au restaurant et c'est alors qu'on m'a dit qu'il fermait pour la journée car le chef était malade. Je ne comprends donc pas pour quelle raison je n'avais pas été informé. Je me suis fait répondre qu'on m'avait téléphoné plus tôt par contre étant au travail à l'heure de l'appel je n'ai pu répondre. Le jeune homme m'a donc informé qu'il n'a pas laissé de message car la plupart des personnes ne les écoutes pas .. Je travaille dans le service à la clientèle et pour moi c'est inacceptable comme service. De plus, ayant réservé sur la plateforme open table, le restaurateur aurait dû annuler notre réservation, de ce fait un courriel nous aurait avisé! Nous nous sommes déplacé dans des conditions pas très idéale, avons payé le parcomètre pour ne pas manger. Je ne recommande pas !

    This place is rough around the edges. Could be really nice with a bit of a face lift. They need a new dishwasher O.o The food and cocktails were very nice

    Although we went on a holiday and the manager expressed being understaffed, this was the worst experience I have ever had dinning. Some minimal service practices would have made me overlook the 1 hour wait between appetizers and mains. We ended up leaving before receiving them because a table that arrived after we had finished our appetizers received the same items (pizza and pasta) that we had ordered, before us. wrong drinks being brought, no bread brought after requested, water not hit the table until 30 min in. Manager gave two rounds of shot 2 hours into the service, which was appreciated but not replaced having the food on the table. I hate writing a bad review and I hope this was caused solely due to the short staffing but in my opinion their staff should be retrained to better approach situation like these.

    So delicious and great service! We got the boar taglitelle and the rose pasta and both were exceptional. We also split a pizza to start which we would highly recommend!

    We went for our reservation and the restaurant was closed. We had to look for another restaurant on Christmas eve. It would have been good the restaurant didn’t accept reservations on Christmas eve if they were not going to be open.
