“Amazing service, wonderful atmosphere and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

First off let me say the service was amazing. The guy was nice enough to sneak us in without a reservation which was awesome because we showed up around peak dinner time. He was very friendly and answered all questions about the menu! I had the steak with vegetables. It was cooked really well and and good flavor. The veggies were a bit bland, but the bread made up for it! The restaurant had a good feel, very quaint and personal. I recommend giving this place a shot. I know I'll be back if I ever make it this way again!

“Charming service. Great wine. Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Went off of TA reviews. We had had our fill of German cuisine and beer. Craving something different. This place had a great wine selection. The server was incredibly charming. And the food was very good. A sweet little spot away from the raucous beer chugging crowds.

“Great experience, nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

We checked out the restaurant based on TA ratings. We had a very nice family meal with great food and smiling service. Bread basket with olive oil was a nice energy boost after a longish walk. The salad with calamari had a nice burst of flavour. In the main course we tried roasted fish and beef steak which were both enjoyable, beef was a bit chewy though for our liking. The wine was good value and we could order by the glass, and we finished with glass of grappa. Would recommend. Pls reserve in advance since it is a smallish place and many walk-ins can not be entertained.

“scent of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

True Italian place in true German surroundings. An oasis of Mediterranean on the concrete-gray street. Menu is short but everything we try was excellent. Extensive is the list of wines. Friendly and quick service. To summarize: place worth to visit, not only if you want to escape from Munchen specialties but mostly if you simply like good food in a good place with its own atmosphere. Restaurant is small and quite popular so booking is recommended. For good weather few tables outside, nice but with all the traffic next to you, so my advice is to stay inside. You need to speak German or Italian to communicate with the staff on more sophisticated level, but otherwise – food speaks for itself. Closed on Sundays. Too far to walk from the center, taxi from Main Station is 10 minutes and Euro 10-12, S-Bahn is close by.

“Outstanding Italian food in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Very small restaurant so be sure to make reservations. The food and service are wonderful. I had a whole bronzino and excellent salad with red peppers and mozzarella. Order what you like, but it would be possible to take a "dartboard" approach to ordering -- everything is that good! The staff are very helpful and treat you like family -- they knew my name by the 2nd visit. They also have excellent wines, reasonably priced. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.
