Wow, this was a very pleasant surprise. Located on the 1st floor with windows all around. Perfect Italian food, very very nice. The service was very good and pleasant. Definitely worthwhile a visit.

The team was very welcoming and friendly, but the food was poor! Ate the risotto with pine nuts and spinach... but it was full of garlic. The vegetarian lasagne has nothing of homemade, but more of the industrial frozen variety... the spinach and ricotta ravioli...More

The food was fine and really soon delivered. The atmosphere was not really cosy and doesn't bring a romantic evening. The price you finally pay is not fair for the whole concept. Bring your money to place that deserves it!

Very slow service. Unfriendly staff. So-so food (at best). The only advantage is the location, in the heart of Basel. Avoid.
