A very nice cozy place, the food is delicious, the service is fast and attentive. As a main dish I ordered 'Filet pur met carpaccio van verse truffels' - tender veal pieces with grated truffles and sauce - I was in paradise, I had a feeling that my feet went weak, luckily I was seated, the taste was incomparable.

Staff very friendly. We were able to have a quick dinner, even though they were fully booked. They have a nice card, with some different dishes and pastas, so it seems original. Based on the reviews, my expectations were not met. But not very expensive, and very near to our hotel so that was a plus.

Cosy little place, decent prices for its location. Reservations are definitely recommended, especially on weekends. We were lucky to get a table because we went at 8pm; it was completely full after that and several people had to be turned away by the super-nice server. The crostinis and pastas were lovely, and the wine selection was quite extensive. I had... More

The food was average but we really enjoyed the evening. The tirimisu was not so good - think I will send them my recipe !!! All in all I would try it again.

Excellent service! Although they were fully booked; they gave us a table for two to have a quick meal before we went to the movies. The interior is not very special but we loved their italian dishes! Absolute worthwhile to go for the whole menu next time!

Then why would I give this a good review? Simple. We had good food and good service for a good price and that's what it's all about in the end. Or is it? The waiter was a young friendly man. He wasn't much of a communicator (must be the strong silent type) but boy did he run his service to... More

The backside of getting good revues is probably that you get lasy and loos that little extra. You need a reservation to eat here on a Tuesday .
