It was my second visit to this restaurant and both were equally good. I had to take Saltimbocca alla Romana again, as on my first visit it was delicious. Having been to Italy countless times I have to say that this restaurant is as authentic...More

Nice looking restaurant inside and out. Decent food but nothing special. Took 40 minutes to get pasta when the place was practically empty. Many fruit flies buzzing around the food and table during the meal.

Traditional service, very tasty! Experienced staff, not just students earning extra cash. I had a pizza and a soft drink for 10 EUR!

There were very many English speakers when we arrived and the staff is very comfortable with English if you don't speak German. Food was just a delicious as last year. A slow pace should be expected, not in a bad sense, in a European sense....More
