THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Plein Air Cafe Restaurant Review

: Locals say Cardini is making a comeback with its nuvoa cucina Italiana. The interior is a bit off-setting with its thick cement pillars one must navigate around to reach the tables. The outdoor patio is by the pool and offers an impressive sight if you look up at the surrounding skyscrapers. The menu offers authentic Italian dishes of pasta, chicken, seafood and veal.
