Here are some reviews let by the members of our Jury: 

« I really enjoyed the crab salad as it was beautifully fresh & tasty. The fish was really well cooked and paired well with the sweet tomatoes and the delicious artichoke puree. The plate was a little cold, but this is understandable given the limitations of the kitchen in the flat. The dessert was wonderful. I thought the soup was a little floury and the risotto could have done with more seasoning, but overall the quality of the food was very good. Overall it is a 3.75/5 for me. » – Cassie Y.

« Well-executed food; simple yet effective dishes and came at a great pace (not too rushed or too late). The 5 courses filled me up, and that is always a great thing ;) Some items could have used more staple ingredients (salt, pepper, etc.) but I enjoyed the entire experience. Recommended. » – Travis L.

« An interesting and delicious menu, the leek and potato soup with saffron and truffle oil was a perfect starter for the cold and rainy night. Everything was expertly cooked and it was a really fun evening! » – Denise M.

« Francesco and Marco were pleasant and friendly, and created some excellent dishes. » – Vic A.
