“Good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Visited without reservation on Monday night. Had table but was quite busy for a Monday evening. Staff were very helpful & friendly, and had quite good English. Food & drink were priced quite reasonably, (Chips etc. are separate). Had steak with chips & seafood platter with salad both lovely. Desserts were delicious.

“Reasonable fare in the city centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The restaurant is not your 'typical Italian restaurant' but neither is it a touristy one. It has a bill of fare to attract tourists but on the evening we visited, a birthday dinner party was being catered for as well as other young professionals. One clue to the clientele the restaurant is aiming for is in the list of beers- almost all Belgian craft beers. There is an amazing selection of pizzas but all mozarella based.
I had a mozarella 'Calabrese' as a starter and I cannot recall ever having so much cheese on my plate together with a lot of tomato, of course. My spaghetti carbonara was probably too salty for its own good - and mine. A glass of Chianti was good value and service was friendly and quite prompt.
EUR 2 cover charge but no service charge included.

“Acceptable food, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We ate here last night, receiving very poor service. The waitress outside rolled her eyes at us for asking to move a chair to the other soide of the table, even if it had zero effect for anyone else. This attitude persisted, very untypical for an italian place.

The pizza was fine, the pasta mediocre......
