Excelent service, tasty food, great wine. It was already my fifth time. Homemade pasta was fantastic, tiramisu seemed originaly made like in Italy, whereas the Sardenian wine more than excelent. I understand that prices may be a bit expensive, but in my opinion It's definitely worth it!

We visited this restaurant in October to celebrate my husband's birthday. On my birthday, we also went here. We are always satisfied eating here so when my girlfriends asked me for a suggestion to meet up for Christmas, this was my first suggestion to them.

Had a dinner with my wife, daughter and sister and we had an excellent meal ! Our waiter was very helpful and attentive! The ambiance was excellent and the food is the closet to eating In Italy that I have found in Oslo. We had the Spaghetti with seafood, Gnocchi, Lam and tortellini and all of them were top notch!...

Got a table even though we had not reserved in advance. We both had lasagna. It was accompanied by bread,but we really missed a salat. Service was good but the staff was actually a bit to polite, belive it or not.
