“Good eat!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

Did not expect the reviews. We had a good experience overall, the owner was very nice and friendly, probably why we ate there. The waiter we had was a little abrupt but thats a little but of the culture as well, the food was good and the price supported it. I would not recommend buying a bottle of wine as it is well overpriced, even the house wine. The bread they put on the table is not free.

“Stay away !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

Chased on the street by a heavy weight bearded man wearing a ridiculous hat, we were promised homemade pasta - which probably was not! - Once inside we were obliged (to avoiding discussions) to a not requested horse oeuvre (later featuring a heavy expense) and all the food was worse than mediocre. An offensive odor of not cleaned, and an outrageous bill served by the arrogant and tricky man came full circle

“Very expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2014

The focus of the owner of this restaurant is to upsell. It's tempting to criticise the food under the circumstances - but actually, the food is okay. The issue is getting a bill for 135€ when you just popped in for pasta and some wine.

“Food okay but it felt wrong”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2014

Heavy Roman food was fine. The additions that were over sold were too dear as was the house wine. It has been a long time since I asked for a fiscal receipt but I did here due to the way the bill was presented. Won't be back.
