We ordered the calamari and short ribs to start, they came out quickly and were delicious. As mains we had the truffle gnocchi and the three cheese gnocchi, both were really good. We had the crème brûlée and sorbets for dessert with an espresso. Everything tasted fantastic, the service was great and we were again impressed by Grappa. I highly recommend it, it won’t disappoint.
