The place was empty at 9pm on a Thursday, literally not a single customer... We asked for a table by the window. Told it was reserved. I hopped on TripAdvisor, walked three blocks to Osteria Coco Triponne for a Florentine steak that was soooooo satisfying. When we walked back past this terrible restaurant, the table we had asked for was... More

Considering this was the first time I had come to enjoy proper Italian Pizza I was very excited about the quality. I was certainly not let down in any way. The flavours that boomed out from the first bite were extraordinary. I can honestly say that I will never taste a pizza the same now, in a good way. The... More

When we had entered the bistrot we were the only guests. We went in as it looked good from the street. The waitress approached us immediately. She was kind, smiling and with good English.

The place was more likre a fast food restaurant. The risotto was rice! And seemed to stress burgers more than local fare. Service waa good and pleasant. The steak was ok for italy. A lot of local young people in the place.

Had one dinner there while on vacation and I didn't care for the sauce my pasta was in. They also could not comply with gluten-free food for my husband.

First time i I got angry in a restaurant. We waited for a menu 15 minutes, the officiant lied to us and did not get other table, accused me in a bad English skills, the food was too salty and spicy. In the end we've tasted it in a hotel room cause it was much more comfortable.

It was the most terrible service I ever had in more than 25 countries I visited! Just only one waiter speaks English somehow and he was complete jerk! We waited our order more than half an hour after waited a waiter more than 15 minutes and had to have our food with us. Worsest restaurant in the world!!! :(
