I enjoyed the place, the typical Ligurian decor and atmosphere and I loved the food and the way they serve it. The waiters were friendly, they made me feel welcome. It's not just about food it's about the place and the staff. A special thanks to chef Daniele.

A set menu of 3 pasta courses followed, by various cheese and meats. Pasta was very nice, although after 3 courses we were already getting filled up! Good friendly service, who were very relaxed. Considering the fixed price of 19 euros including wine per person, it was a very reasonable meal, although a bit large and the courses did not... More

The decor is charming, the service very friendly, the menu concept interesting, but we just find the food bland. The rave reviews received by this restaurant seem a bit too enthusiastic to be credible. But then, maybe, it's just us...

Daniele is a wonderful host. He welcomed us in, even though he was closing for mid-afternoon. He shared his love of Italy. We just had to go back for dinner. Delicious, simple, traditional. The interior brought us in, but Daniele brought us back.

This restaurant offers a set menu of five different pasta dishes inclusive of wine which makes it really affordable and a great experience. The pasta was of a different style to what we have had before in Italian restaurants but we really enjoyed it and it was excellent value for money. It is only a small restaurant but it has... More

For someone who does not speak Italian, I could not make out the menu at first, but that does not matter. They only serve pasta, five courses of pasta. But it is really good pasta. For 17Euros per head we had five pasta courses starting with pasta in cheese and garlic and finishing with pasta and nutella served with as... More
