Don't bother. Went for dinner very disappointing. Pasta is clearly pre-cooked and then microwaved. Lacking flavour. As for the €4.25 bread basket - looks good pity it was stale. They must prepare the baskets in the morning and of course by night time bread and biscuit becomes stale. Can't recommend this restaurant. €15.00 is to expensive for a plate of... More

Great spaghetti puttanesca. The carbonaras were ok. The focaccia a l'oglio was good but with Too much butter On them. A bit overprized.

Went here for a lunch date. My date had a gluten intolerance but the staff were excellent in catering to her needs. I had the carbonara, which was fantastic, one of the best meals out I've had. Very good service and food. Highly recommend
