We were a group of 4 colleagues - we came to lunch on a weekday. Although we came early and the place was nearly empty, service was very very slow. The food was fresh and done reasonably well, although nothing was out of the ordinary. Price was reasonable, but there are better options in this area.

Restourant with potential in nice place. Bad service. Ceasar salad was OK, beer was not fresh. Pizza was terrible. May be two millimeters thick, dry and not tasty. The worst pizza i ever had in restourant.

Went to dinner here with my boyfriend and sister. The food was delicious and fresh. First we got the focaccia, carpaccio and Cesar salad. All were delicious however for the carpaccio we asked for the cheese on the side and never received it even after asking twice. Next we had the spaghetti bolognese which was hearty, tasty and a great... More

The food was average and had to be sent back because the chicken was raw. Then waited for half an hour until it came back when everyone else was finished. The waiter was not very good and then had the nerve to complain about the tip which was much more than he deserved. He really deserved nothing and should be... More

We visited this restaurant with a group. It is located inside the train museaum compound and there is outside seating, but it was cold so we had a table inside. The atmosphere is nice. The menu offers a good choice of Italian classics, but nothing surprising or new. There is an extensive wine list but wine prices are too high.... More

Coming from the cold north and enjoying a T-shirt weather dinner outside in mid-November certainly added to the experience, but dinner here was very pleasant in itself. Excellent food, good wine, great service, and reasonable prices. As a bonus, a chance to slam the presidential elections with an American at the next table...

We had a really enjoyable meal on Sunday night, 30th October. We had two different pizzas; a Four Cheese and Vegetable one. Also a Ragu Bolognese with Parmesan. Excellent glasses of Italian Merlot and a refreshing Italian White. Excellent, friendly and not over attentive service. Because it was a Sunday evening the Station Complex was not heaving
