The I Grusoni is another restaurant within the hotel and it also serves Italian cuisine at both lunch and dinner. The restaurant is usually perfect for casual dates, snacks, grilled foods and pizzas.
The third restaurant is the Il Cappero, the best known restaurant of the hotel and it boasts of a Michelin star.
