The friendliest welcome at the restaurant. Big thanks Stermasi for the very special evening.

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews and so glad that we did. It was perfect in every way. The welcome we got, the fabulous service all night... read more long from all the family. The staff were so friendly and took so much time to talk to us and explain the food and drink. The food was to die for- so so old.Tuna carpaccio, swordfish beautifully cooked, grilled squid all served with perfect vegetables and fabulous olive oil and bread. We had a wonderful evening. Thank you so much. We may come tomorrow as well!
