I came here with a friend of mine and we enjoyed a 3-course-meal which was absolutely fabulous. Our waiter was fun and very forthcoming. Definitely coming back here! We came during the week so there was no reservation necessary.

We went to this restaurant for our new year eve dinner and the dining experience there was very enjoyable. Despite the fact that only set meal was offered that night, the choice of food, the quality and the quantity were satisfying. Staff were very attentive and their service was warm and helpful. The food was not pricey given this eventful... More

Wonderfull place to be. The food was great ever though the restaurant was full and rather noisy. Reservations are a must.

Don't miss! Fabulous! Everything is fine, nice and ... very, very good. A real pleasure. Small details make happiness, but happiness is not a detail.

Good service and very good food. We came on a super busy night but they fit us in without a reservation. I had the gnocci and it was perfectly cooked and the sauce was very good. Big portions so I had to talk 1/2 home... even better the next day!

Went there this week. Toni (the owner) is amazingly friendly, a true legend in the city. I had some antipasti (salami, prosciutto and parmigiano) which were all of good quality. Then I had a beef filet with pasta. The filet was delicious, melting on my tongue. But the red pasta sauce (ricotta) tasted too much like the one the sell... More

The service by Italians was, as usual fast and efficient but the cuisine was not as good as we expected after having seen the other reviews on TripAdvisor. The starter (octopus salad) was not suficiently seasoned. We chose veal with marsala sauce for the main dish - the veal was tender but the marsala sauce was insipid. We did however... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant serving quite authentic Italian cuisine - it is not a pizzeria (of which there are anyway many ;-) The food was always good and the products they use to cook are of high quality. The two owners (which are brothers) care for a very close and warm-hearted relationship to their guests, attentive and... More
