Description: One of the most visited Italian restaurants in Riga has now reopened in new, larger premises.Designed like a 1930s' Italian mafia bar in America with a well thought out design and charming, comfortable surroundings.Home-made pasta, home baked bread, fish and grill are all part of the very fine Italian cuisine. Chef's daily menu is something to consider too. A wide range of wines, cognacs, aperitifs, digestifs and classic Italian cocktails.

“Great place to linger over food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Ok, so the service is not fast by American standards, but it was competent and good, albeit slow. Don't go here if you want fast service. The food was excellent. We shared a Margarita salad and Jim had the pork chop, i had the carbonaro. Both were excellent. We had camparis and shared a bottle of very good shiraz. Total bill $70.00 USD. We left full and happy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Excelent foor, affordable pricing, nice service. Very quiet restaurant and we wonder why. Good food and especially they take care of food allergies. Believe or not, lactoce free food was not a problem at all in this Italian style restaurant. Really going there on our next trip to Riga!

“Good and quite place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We spend lovely evening with great atmosphere and excellent service. The place is wonderful. And the stuff served really nice, they care about you.
Food was very good. Starters tasted excellent, the plate was big and enough for two persons. The pasta with tuna was very good. Chicken tasted a little bit dry but rice with vegetables was nice. They served tea in teapot what is possible to use for two persons.

Nice place where to come back and enjoy atmosphere! Recomend it.

“Charming Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Lovely restaurant on a side street in the old town. Food quality was excellent and staff were excellent as well. Reasonably priced in comparison to other similar restaurants in the city.
