Duke's Review

It dubs itself a California-style restaurant and bar, although the California rolls have tuna and carrot in them and they've added mint leaves to the Caesar salad. But the truth is, once you look at Duke's menu after a stretch of Italian-only bingeing, you may actually want it all. Perhaps a nice, juicy beef fillet, and the finishing touch of the warm apple pie served with gelato. The decor is Malibu–beach house–minimalist. The outdoor patio in the back is consummately SoCal chic. And up front, opening out onto the street, all the beautiful people from the neighborhood (read: plenty of unnatural blondes) are huddled around the bar, sipping frozen cocktails, the whir of blenders and music blaring in the background.

    Duke's Review

    I'm an usual guest at Duke's cause I really feel at home! Food it's really great! People who are working at Duke's are really taking care of every single guest, at the same time service is informal. Last week I went there with some American friends, they were so surprised to find such good and creative recipes, you can find menu and wines at www.dukes.it. Duke's is closed Sunday and Monday except during Summer (closed Saturday and Sunday).
    Really worth!
