This restaurant is minuscule, and reservations are almost essential. The decor is nice and cheerful, most notably with a couple of shelves of cookbooks and knick-knacks. Many tongue-in-cheek signs hung on the wall. The service we enjoyed was excellent. Our waitress struggled as much with...More

Okay, first of all YOU HAVE TO TRY THE PESTO PASTA. It was absolute heaven. Everything we had at the restaurant was amazing, but the pesto beat the rest for sure. The service was great, we had seats outside and they found 5 cushions for...More

We managed to snag a reservation for dinner at this tiny, out of the way trattoria. The creative menu, printed daily, seems to be a selection of their dishes, but not everything that is posted online. Even these dishes are tweaked here and there. My...More

Strange location. In between residential building, and a sex shop, close to main road. No style, nor ambiance. Strange. We booked on a recommendation, and almost turned around. WoW though .. excellent excellent meal. Squids were special. Pasta dish, beautifully made and tasty. The creamy...More

I went there last Saturday with my friend who came to visit me from London. The food was terrible and we paid 75 euros for Stoccafisso and Coniglio. My friend ordered a bottle of organic wine that was disgusting. It's a pity because dishes from...More

Dear Behones, we are sorry but it is quite impossible to find DISGUSTING food in our restaurant. It's totally unreal. Probably, you got nervous for our waiter behaviour but - we guess - that she/he was worried because money must be right while closing the...More
