Good Italian food, Good wine list. Tricky to park.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends. Pluses: great bruschetta; nice choice of Italian and Ticino wines at reasonable prices; classic Italian food good overall; quick walk from many of the central hotels. Minuses: not a huge restaurant, can be tricky area to find a parking place.

We went here for lunch- the service was good and we got to sit outside and enjoy a bit of the sunshine. The menu was limited- 1 salad, 1 pasta and 1 meat dish. We got a shrimp pasta which was good but not great. I would go here to enjoy a nice glass of wine but not for another... More

What you see is what you get - superb local fare (lashings of steak tartare, truffles, meats, cheeses and veal) washed down with excellent local & Italian wines, with very friendly service. There is space for outdoor seating to watch the world go buy in summer. You can't book and you may be sat next to another group (big long... More

We went, then went back again! We had a great English speaking waiter who really seemed to enjoy our enthusiasm for trying some local wines and he came up with great recommendations. The extensive wine list (almost everything is available by the glass) almost eclipses the food, but this was also very good, especially the canapes which arrive with your... More

We went for lunch. Reservations are not required for lunch but highly encouraged for dinner as the place is small and usually packed. The atmosphere comes close to a bistro but with an Italian touch and a couple of waiters swirling around. White table-cloth on long tables that you share with other diners gives the restaurant the right mix between... More

We went there on short notice with a group of eight colleagues. Everything was excellent, from the welcome, starters, wine and main course right to coffee. Service was efficient and inobtrusive but charming, the different hams, salami and bruschetta for starters are something to be remembered and cherished. My Tuna was cooked to with a nice crust and nicely red... More

We decided to pop in today for a glass of wine and ended up spending a leisurely afternoon there:) The wine list is beyond extensive and the men working were very knowledgable. We had a man named Goran and he spoke english very well so that certainly helped us! They have a small menu that changes each day and my... More

Always reliable and open for lunch and dinner. Seating mainly at long, shared tables, which is most convivial. Don't go there seeking a leisurely meal if you don't book and are lucky to get a place; tables are in demand and turnover is encouraged. Good advice is to make that call first. Skilled waiters point out and describe the day's... More
