A lovely venue with quiet background music from a decent loudspeaker away from the guests left ear! Much appreciated. Service excellent, and food divine. The menu is not large but adequate for vegan and vegetarian tastes with gluten free options.

It's hard to put into words just how good this restaurant actually is. It is really uncommon to experience ALL the facets of a fine dining experience coming together and delivering on all fronts, but they do it with quiet humility. The obvious passion, effort, and ability that goes into the food prep is clear and this delivers on the palate as well, with the superb use of locally sourced seasonal ingredients. This small family team, whilst consummate professionals, are at heart just incredibly passionate and humble folks who are doing their best to give a top experience - and they most certainly DO. This really is one of the finest dining experiences we've had, globally! Make this your bucket list restaurant experience and you won't be disappointed.

This was a wonderful experience from start to finish: exquisite food, interesting regional wines and a charming and engaging service from Chris and Nina. Salvatore is a skilled chef and we felt that this was up to Michelin star levels. We loved it and will be back!

An outstanding restaurant! Beautiful food, cooked to perfection. A very different menu to a 'typical' Italian restaurant. There is also an extremely interesting wine list.

Beautiful restaurant in all senses. Dishes could vary more but that could also be due to variety of clientele passing through - deemed not necessary. Wine list as well. Potentially two additional wines per grape variety and definitely a few more grappas;) Thank you again, wonderful evening!

The meal was a real treat. Every dish was prepared with care and attention to detail that you could taste! A relatively simple dish such as chicken liver pâté was elevated to a thing of beauty through masterful flavor combinations and beautiful preparation. The wine selection is clever, local and accessible. It is nice to be able to select a smaller carafe or glass of excellent wines to accompany the various courses. I would recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly.

We loved the food. Risotto portion was far too big. Kabeljauw was not fresh and a little bit overcooked. But overall it was a very fine experience. Service was perfect, very friendly!!!

Dear people, For us a 8 is a very high figure. Coming from Europe we’ve got a very high standard in eating lovely food and being Belgian we know very well the French and the Italian influences....but overall very nice kitchen and people. I would do something about the decor which is okay but can be much more special and at the moment I see the desk, plastic holders for the knifes, forks and spoons, which are taped up. Really would love to have a real candle light. The fresh flower, tulip, I think Queen of the night, was there, always apriciated. So...lots of compliments....Can only suggest, ask my husband for advice, he’s an incredible architect and interior designer, in your lovely restaurant. Kind regards and again, we had a lovely evening at your place and it was just what we needed at that moment. Thanks for that!
