Previously located downtown, this French-Italian restaurant moved to a more intimate space inside a restored villa in 2008. Set beneath a high roof with exposed timber beams, the open-air dining room is decorated with candlelit tables and a wide variety of potted plants, creating a greenhouse-like setting. The menu includes classic dishes, such as beef carpaccio, as well as more unusual options like duck confit samosas with balsamic-shallot dipping sauce. The restaurant also serves an extensive international wine list and Italian-style desserts, such as cherry tiramisu.
