We chose this place for our date night and didn't regret it. The interior of the restaurant looks great, it's modern with a nice atmosphere. We had pasta (Tirolese & Carbonara) which were delicious and well made. The wine selection is excellent. Staff is extremely...polite and professional. We really enjoyed it. Would definitely come again.More

I have written several reviews for this restaurant over more than 5 years, and it has been a bit of a rollercoaster. Service used to be an issue, but the food was consistently of a high quality. Not so on my recent visit. The menu...is much shorter, and rather unimaginative. You know when you have read through it once and have to go back to the beginning to find something? The Chianina steak is sadly missing, and the Uruguayan steak is overpriced. So lamb racks seemed a safe fall back, except that the lamb, although tender, was clearly past it best with a very slightly rancid smell. Yes, I know I should have sent it back. Anyway, at 30 euros (without sides) for that one dish, it is simply not good enough. Worse, the duck liver pate as a starter was served already (and fairly thinly) spread on bread. That’s a first for me and this restaurant I think. Anyway, sorry about the inevitable slump in business but economies have been taken too far. Found a lovely wine though, so this slightly tempered the pain of the bill. But I won’t be going back for a while.More

My girlfriend and I found this beautiful restaurant on the way to the basilica and we decided to have our lunch here. Pasta with tomatoes, tuna steak, beer, juice and the bill is 35€. The price is quite fine, of course you pay for the...ambiance where you enjoy good food. The tuna steak was perfect, even the pasta with tomato sauce is perfect, only that one woman who worked was fluent, like she didn’t have the passion, desire to work and wants to go home as soon as possible, but if we put that aside everything else was perfect :) I would recommend this a restaurantMore

Had an excellent meal here. Seven of us ate for under £100 (although you might want to avoid any wine - it’s extortionate! ). We tried many different dishes from pizza to pasta, duck to calamari. Everything was delicious, service was spot on. Would recommend...and definitely go back.More

The place looks really nice and the food is not bad but unfortunately they tried hard to ruin our experience. At first sight the service it’s perfect but after a while you understand that they just try to spill money out of your wallet... They...constantly fill your glass, like every 4 minutes, both with wine and water, they fill it at every sip you take and then they come to ask if you want more wine every 5 minutes, looking weird when you say “no thanks” We waited 1 hour after the aperitivo before our food came... it wasn’t bad but portions were not big.. At the beginning of the dinner they insisted hard to try their tipical Hungarian liquor.. at the end we discovered that one of the micro glasses they give you costed 10€!!!! For one little shot!! We ended up spending 50€ per person for a little aperitivo plus one small dish of pasta, a glass of wine and this famous shot.... way too much! I really don’t recommend this restaurant!More

This is a great restaurant situated in an area with lots of attractions near by. The food was delicious, I ordered a second cappellacci pasta plate because it was that good! Excellent selection of wines and the waiters did an excellent job checking back and...making sure everything was perfect! This restaurant also had a very cosy atmosphere and was just what we needed on this cold afternoon!More
