Not much to say, no one there, had to hunt down a couple of menus for us, the food was not great art. At least the polenta fries were good, thankfully. Did not entice me to go to dinner.

We just came in for a quick bite and the choices were limited for lunch. The service was substandard, the prices expensive and the portions small. Likely ok if you want to stay in the hotel.
