We had a great night here... the food was great and the poor host had to wait for us to finish our bottle till almost midnight, but was very happy to do so. The Mediterranean style sushi was a really nice surprise and delicious. Despite...More

The food was tasty but too expensive and small portions. 15E for an appetiser with 12-15 1.5cm slices of octopus is too much! The service was very slow with very few guests around.

This summer we went there for a couple of times, having business lunch. The place along the Ispra beach is extraordinary; the choice, mainly sushi style plates is also extraordinary (because difficult to find in that area). These plates are nicely decorated and the food...More
