The prices are a little on the high range so they get a C especially since the serving sizes are not excessive but are not too small either, even though the overall décor and atmosphere is so elegant and calming that it gets an A.
The service good and the wait staff seems to be friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items and they come around the right amount of times so they get a B+. As for the food it gets an A- especially the items on their “piatto forte”.
