“Great restaurant with great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Love this place!! I used TripAdvisor & found this place. Really great. Staff very welcoming and attentive.

Starter:
Had a very different starter: basically ravioli stuffed with ricotta cheese with a tomato sauce which is made with squid ink, which is black. As you cut into it, white ricotta spills out into the black surrounding sauce. Great contrast!

Main:
Red snapper with side dish of salad. Very good! The Pinot Grigio was lovely accompaniment.

Dessert:
Chocolate mousse was great.

“Fantatic "meze" starter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great fish "meze" to start, one is sufficient for two otherwise you wont enjoy the main course. Fresh fish great for main and dessert selection good and nice quality.
Staff very attentive but discreet. All in all a good experience. Restaurant looks great but could be a bit darker to make it more "cosy"

“Quiet, comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Just stopped in for drinks, campari & soda & Cisk beer. Comfortable seating, nice local place. Reviews must be 50 characters so I'm adding this sentence.

“Good hidden address”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

In the hidden garden of a theatre, very nice and calm seating .. pasta are worth it and friendly prices will attract you again. Typically the kind of address you need to know before you get there

“Very good but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Very good seafood especially the starters, location is excellent but more ideal for winter since its underground.
