Fodor's Review

Northern Italian–inspired cooking, in the form of tasty risotto, homemade pasta, and excellent salads is on offer at this popular garden spot. The best feature of this restaurant is its waterfront location, taking advantage of the views and fresh breezes off the gulf. Fresh fish rounds out the menu, as well as barbecued meats. Sadly, wood-oven pizzas are not the restaurant's forte, and service can be painfully slow. But sitting under a lime-green umbrella, enjoying the breeze and the view, isn't a hardship.
