I have visited this restaurant several times before and every time it was pleasure. I don’t know what has happened, but service was amateaur and slow. Also this time quality of food was not same as before. Pasta was cold and under cooked (I know...when pasta is ”al dente”). Top of everything waiter tip himself without asking!
Entinen hyvä ravintola, jonka taso on laskenut pahasti. Liekö omistajat vaihtuneet? Hidas ja amatöörimäinen palvelu yhdistyi raakaa pastaan. Kaiken huipuksi tarjoilija pyöristi laskun ylös päin ilman lupaa.More
Just saw in FB that is a new Italian restaurant ,so we decided to visit , our choice fall on fish food plate , before food were delivered on table we get our drinks and basket with four pieces of bred ( no oil and...Balsamico ! ) I think a real Italians serve always bread oil and Balsamico ?! So if you want can eat dry bred 👎👎👎
Waitress was not from the best trained ...
unfortunately we have tasted and decided no more times , is not that atmosphere to come back .More
Jumped there by chance I found a bit naïve the furniture but the food was very good. Well prepared and with delicious taste, especially seared tuna fish.
Price is more than fair. But the principal asked for tip when paying saying that service was not...included in the price. That is not a problem since price is right but is neither customary in Latvia nor disclosed to clients.
A good place for Italian food amateursMore
We arrived early. No other guests, but the waiter still had difficulties to do his job (occupied with his phone). The food was almost OK, When we were paying, the waiter asked for more tip... that was a first for me and a strange experience....We will not be back.More
A quality restaurant, a bit hidden in the old town which, in a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere, offers a wide choice of dishes and pizzas.
Our choice fell on an excellent risotto with porcini mushrooms and a fantastic pizza 4 cheeses, followed by a hot...chocolate and a tiramisu to die for.
Friendly and helpful staff, excellent value for money.More
After eating at several Latvian restaurants, we finally found a great one! We took a margherita pizza as starter and it was really delicious! Then we got the amatriciana spagetti and a lasagna that was the best of my life! The atmosphere is cozy and...welcoming and the service is attentive and friendly. We absolutely recommend this place!More
The eggplant was very good.
Both of your pizzas were unbaked, and soft, the waiter said it was the itakian way to make pizza!
I never before have been served a pizza with unbaked dough, uneatable, we sent the pizzas out, and still had to...pay for it.
Dont go here if you like pizza !More

Ok food, ok atmosphere. We waited long for our food, and it was okay. The waiter demanded we tip and also put this tip on our card rather than leave cash - and tell him how much we wished to tip so he could make...sure we paid as such. Irritating and rude behaviour. I am sure there are better establishments to leave your money at in Riga.More
