The decor is filled with brass, a marble cocktail bar, an open kitchen in black granite, and an impressive ceiling (mirror in the shape of a diamond tip).
Upon tasting the food, you can’t deny that Chef Federico Schiavon pays homage to the best Italian cuisine with his antipasti, creamy risotto, well-sauced pasta, and pizza.
