Classic dishes include the lamb shank, the grilled sea bass and the pan-fried mussels in tomato sauce. On Sunday lunchtimes, and Sunday and Monday evenings, there is live opera and on Thursdays, there is a swing and Motown show.

This place is SO much fun! We made reservations for a friday night at 8PM, requesting a balcony. We arrived a little early, no problem, and were seated right away at a balcony table. This place definitely has special occasion atmosphere. The food and service was good. Live entertainment so much fun. At the end of our meal, it was a little difficult to get out because it had turned into a dance...Read More
