Dining

You can find a great range of restaurants and lounges throughout the Italian decks. The two main dining rooms are La Bussola and L'Ippocampo. They naturally focus on an Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and are noted for the delicious risotto that's made table-side. There are also two less formal dining areas, Le Bistro Cafeteria and La Pergola Restaurant, which are great for casual bites when you just want a quick slice of pizza before dipping in the pool.
