It is a tradicional italian restaurant located in a charming street with some restaurants, bars and art stores. The food is delicious, and you can divide almost alo the plates between at least two people. Arrive early if you dont like to wait, the place is always crowded.

we went in a group of friends and enjoyed a nice evening. the food itself is very expensive, i.e. almost US 50 for a pasta dish.. the appetizers buffet is well presented and you'll find a nice variety of dishes. the service is average and the place is very warm and welcoming. sure you'll find similar restaurants for better prices.

Have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and to sum up the experience I would say it is a very plain Italian food restaurant that built a name some years ago for excellence but now uses the name in one area only and that is to charge a fortune for plain food. Also stay away from the... More

I had a party dinner there, the restaurant is very nice, but the food itself could be better, as the final price to pay is a little bit high.

A wonderful restauarant with a cosy Italian atmosphere and excellent food and service. Good wines. However, they mostly serve dishes for two, apparently to stimulate sharing per table. It is crowded, although we... More

They offer a wide antipasti buffet (per kilo), which is quite good, but be careful, because it can make your meal very expensive.Their pasta is good, sometimes a bit heavy, lots of sauce, and their dishes usually are good for 2 (or more) people.Be aware of the long lines,specially on weekends. Nice but busy atmosphere, sometimes noisy. It is one... More
