Complimenti ai cuochi! Veramente buono e ottima anche la presentazione sui piatti! Il servizio ai tavoli, deve migliorare, personale principiante senza l'esperienza che dovrebbe accompagnare una cucina di indubbia qualità ed elevata taratura, come quella proposta. Comunque, siamo stati veramente bene!
