“Entertaining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Friendly atmosphere in a casual setting bistro style (hard to notice from the outside). Let the "maestro" improvise and ou'll be guided though a creative gastronomic tour of (mainly southern) Italian cuisine.

“Authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

No fix menu, but come here if you are willing to be surprised. Owner might be somewhat directive but gives great advice. Cosy atmosphere.

You have to try this one. Informal, beautiful food and good service. And that all for a decent price!

“Fantastic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2010

A little pricey but well worth it. The owner is a little crazy but that makes it fun and you really see his love of Italian food and wine. Should be tried at least once.
