What Our Diners Say

  • "Real Food By Real Italians!"


    My first time here and I'd just popped in for a quick bite. I had passed by before and had always assumed it was the hotel restaurant for the Holiday Inn next door and thus unlikely to be authentic. I couldn't have been more wrong! The chef is from Capri, the waiters were from Naples and Catania, and the food just as I remembered it from my time working and studying in Italy.
