Excellent Italian cousin

It is a pleasure to have a restaurant that will never disappoint you, where waiters are always nice and friendly and where you can eat a perfect pizza but also an excellent steak although the real special is pasta. Really good!

I went there by chance, a local colleague took us there while we were in a business trip. The food and wine were great, the staff was kind, the dessert was fine. Villiam's rakia was superb! Warm recommendation to anyone staying in Ljubljana who want to taste something more than the restaurants in the city centre.

This was not my first time here. However I had a steak here for the first time. I've also tried mushroom and pumpkin soup. Both were just ok, but not good. I ordered a medium-well done steak, but I must say it was too dry. It was good, but I had so many better ones. Dessert was good but sadly... More

The atmosphere is rustical. People mostly seem to come here in groups and that makes the place quite noisy. If we want pizza there is no question where to go get a pizza. Even better to eat a pizza there still hot. The staff is always nice. The pasta and gnocchi are not up to my taste. I specially don't... More

This restaurant was chosen for us to meet family in Slovenia that we have not seen in many years. I was not disappointed with the food, and after traveling in other parts of Europe was extremely happy to see that the food had a significant amount of flavour. I started with the onion soup which was good, I have had... More

Nice restaurant with good athmosphere and tasty food. Is not just a typical steak house, but also a good pasta place. Not expensive and for sure worth visiting!

A very friendly restaurant with (mainly) Italian type of meals. Staff is extremely friendly, the place is equipped with a cosy old furniture. Food is normal standard good, but I've eaten better.
