“Unexpected excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Based on the other reviews we went last night and they were not wrong.
We has the tournedos vitello and the tagliata with porcini mushrooms and they were both great.
The decor is somewhat unusual but who cares when the food is that good. We also shared a desert that I can't remember the name of but it had chantilly cream to die for.
We used GPS to find it walking around after managing to actually find parking in the old city at night. The meal was worth the parking nightmare.

“Great place great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Great place resembling the house of Barbie and Ken, huge opening to the kitchen showing what's going on.
Chips and home made grissini are an amazing welcome. We had caramelle, baccala and duck ham for starters. All very tasty.
Tortelloni with potato filling had a more subtle but still exquisite taste. Fillet mignon were also very good.
For dessert we had ricotta and pear cake which was delicious.
We paid 40€ each which was a very fair price considering how much and how well we ate.
5 stars.

“Very pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Had pappardelle pasta and some delicious cuore di lattuga salad for a quick dinner, and would go back there any time. Pasta tasted like pasta, and not like "nothing" with sauce. Very nice. Lattuga came with some kind of fried hamy bits which were also very tasty. Unreserved recommendation!

Place itself looks fresh (quite unlike the drab grey surrounds) with imaginative decorations, and the staff are low key, naturally friendly but still know what they are doing.

If in the area, do not miss out!

Oh, and the price is civilised, relative to all the tourist traps in the wider area.
