We had two excellent lunches at this restaurant, after the first one we had to come back for more. We had a pizza, risotto and pasta- all excellent. Service was very friendly (especially child-friendly), food arrived quickly and STEAMING hot. Excellent value for money.

We found ourselves in Bilbao the night before a ferry crossing back to Portsmouth. We found this excellent little restaurant and had a really enjoyable meal for a good price. The portions are monster size and there is no chance if going home hungry! We'll worth a visit.

We found this place by accident while we were stumbling around looking for a place to eat. The interior is nice and the staff were friendly and we got a table even though we had no reservation. I think it helped we had come early for dinner (approx. 5pm) We were given a menu that has a huge list of... More

After two weeks of tapas and pintxos and scrambling for somewhere to sit when we ate we opted for this restaurant as a comfortable choice and change of diet. We were promptly seated and offered English menues. Staff were very helpful, curteous and professional. Prices for food and wine were very reasonable and the surroundings very pleasant. The pasta was... More

I have eaten here on several business trips to Bilbao, it is definitely my restaurant of choice. The house pizza "La Tagliatella" is so light, flavoursome and HUGE. The staff are so friendly, attentive and accommodating, menus are also provided in English. I have taken many business customers here to feast and each and every one has enjoyed the experience....

After visiting too many tapas bars for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during a week-long stay in Bilbao, Italian sounded like a nice change of pace. Our service was good and the food was too. I ordered a calzone which came out the size of a football. It was mostly air and the filling inside was skimpy. The calzone I ordered... More

Good atmosphere and professional service but I don't think it does live up to its hype. A bit on the expensive side. It will be remembered for the big portions and not necessarily for its cuisine

If I'd have written this after our first visit to this restaurant things would have been very different. Sadly, and i do have to mention the fact that, food is actually very good - the salads are fresh and tasty, lots of variety of pasta dishes (although no chicken offered?) portions huge but good value. Ok, so based on this,... More

After 2 weeks of Spanish and Portuegese dishes we wanted Italian food. What a good choice it was to go to this place. Very nice ambiance, good waiters and good sugestions on the menu. We had a salad per person as a starter and then shared a pasta as a main course. After eating both we even couldn't find space... More
