This place is hidden on the Strand. Quaint little restaurant with great atmosphere and great food. Attentive staff, such good food and wine! The crab stuffed bellas and the scallops were out of this world. Pasta primavera was delicious.

Always tasty! The wine offerings are good, and the ambiance is lovely! We always get the sampler appetizer -- great way to start with lots of fresh goodies (cheese, meat, veggies, breads, olives, etc). My favorite dish is the pasta primavera-- it never disappoints.

This is a beautiful restaurant and the food is top notch! So much history about this place, the server was very nice and patient to explain the history to us. It is proper dinning but the price is reasonable given its food quality and ambience.
