The ambiance in the restaurant is nice and homely, though the lighting was rather dark over some of the tables. The place is clean and the food tasted fresh (except for the scallops which tasted like they were previously frozen) and made to order. The appetisers were tasty (especially the octopus) but not exceptional. The pasta with shrimp was very good. Unfortunately, the entrees (especially the scallops with black eyed peas) were incredibly salty. Limited options for wine by the glass (and expensive at $12 for mediocre white). Since the service was so slow (which was odd as the restaurant was not very full) we declined dessert. Overall it was a decent experience but nothing to write home about, and with a check coming out at over $100 for two (1.5 starters; 2 mains; 2 glasses of wine), it is not good enough value for money for us to rush back.
