Someone once described this restaurant as the gastronomic equivalent of a “Bugatti”. These kinds of comparisons work with me… So we went. And I must concur – the setting is very impressive and it goes well with the City. Also the food is nice. The southern Italian / Sicilian concept is good but a bit confusing: what they offer here is high-end rustic food. Don't get me wrong, this could work (like at “La Poule au Pot”) but here it doesn't and the results are dishes with an identity crises which are neither rustic nor very high end (apart from the price tag). However, none of this matters as the service is decent enough for the City and it is refreshingly “European” compared to other City eateries of this type.
