This quirky venue looks a bit like a student canteen but the food is good with a regularly changing menu (hooray) and some out-of-the-ordinary dishes. The service is friendly and the wine list good, definitely worth a visit.

A small restaurant with surprisingly much space. The menu changes daily, so you never know what is being served. Friendly staff.

Fantastic food and good service in an ultra-modern location. The menu changes daily and uses local ingredients, too, so you never know what you're going to get.

Interesting and creative menus. Fresh and mostly organic ingredients. Tasty food and really kind service, very nice with kids. Though a bit trapped in a narrow street it's worth the try.

Thanks to an 'insiders hint' we visited ristorante Olino.... and we went twice to this restaurant (on two consecutive evenings). The restaurant offers a menu card + another daily menu card (changing every day). Everything we tried was delicious: p.e. the spaghettone with sepia and sepia sauce, the lamb.... mmmm). Olina has also a fine wine card. Something about the... More

We ate here last night and again tonight because it was so good. The ambience, service and unusual decor made it a great place to eat. Duck ravioli, smoked goose, fillet steak pork with apple and murtilles all delicious. Cocktails, amuse Bouches and cream buns all came as complementary . All the staff were efficient and friendly and both nights... More

We ate here last night after we walked of another restaurant because it took 30 min before we were acknowledged . The service was great and the food fresh and we would say modern Italian. Very impressed.

A modern, refined environment which constantly changes aspect thanks to its eclectic owner Daniela who pleasantly surprises you each time with her creative decorations. The main waiters Alfono and Tiziana are friendly, very helpful and give good wine suggestions. The food is exquisite. You can go there for a nibble or go the whole whack. The menu of the day...

We ordered from the 12 Euro Offer of the Day, choosing the Tartare of Salmon and the Veal Escalope and a Mixed Salad as a 5 Euro extra, plus sparkling water. We were given free appertives which seemed to be a fruit punch and also a small vegetable tartlet, both of which were very welcome. The main courses when they... More
