Been here a couple of times now and had pasta dishes. The food is good, but nothing special. Service is efficient, but could be friendlier.

The food was excellent and I can recommend the Duck risotto. Could have done with way more Duck. In a restaurant that charges more than $40 for a 200g steak the service did not match. The Tiramisu was excellent and well presented
