“Un italiano vero.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

You have nothing more to expect from an italian restaurant. The atmosphere is tipical old italian style and the personel is realy warm.
We got Octopus which was skined and non smell of "fish" and Entrecote with parmesan crust. Excellent both.
At the end Tiramisu. THE BEST EVER!

“Pricey, but very enjoyable dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Our family of four ate here on Dec. 22nd. It was a lovely restaurant. The staff was very personable, quite helpful, and made these tired travelers smile. My husband and I ordered the salt encrusted fish- it was cooked perfectly but could have used a little more spice. My daughtered ordered a vegetarian dish and loved it. The desserts were enjoyed by all. As the dinner progressed service did slow as the restaurant filled with diners. But when the servers were at your table, they gave you their full attention. It was an expensive dinner, but it was very, very enjoyable. There was a small Christmas market a couple of blocks away, so after the nice dinner, we strolled through the market. It was a perfect evening.

“Mediocrity at a high price....go elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We were so excited to go to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday.....but boy...if are looking for a "fine dining experience", you might want to keep looking. The decor was beautiful.....but the service was incredibly slow....the food mediocre....& the price was extremely high. We won't go back & would not recommend this restaurant ....there are many fine restaurants in Munich to choose from.

“Great place for a evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Great place. Been there 4 times, last in October 2012. Each time the food and wine was fantastic. Highly recommended. Yes like most places in Munich the pace of service is not rapid. It's the place for an evening not a quick bit.

“Looked beautiful & promising.....but really slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This restaurant was highly recommended to us for our special evening in Munich. It was lovely & the menu looked promising. But it was a disappointment in service & level of presentation. We didn't mind that it was very...very.... Expensive, but combining the long lag in service between courses, with mediocre presentation made the "special" evening "un special". We won't go back.
