... dinner at Mamma Tamino's. Although this restaurant got good ratings on Trip Advisor, we were disappointed with our experience. The tables were very small and close together, the seats were hard and uncomfortable, and it felt like we were speed dating and any minute someone would yell, "switch"!

You don't feel the sense of movement at all. Nick did well, he was a great sport. Not so sure he thoroughly enjoyed it, but it was good of him to come.
