If you are up to try a typical Bucharest service, then here is the right place. Our waitress provided all the forms of rudeness: lack of patience to place our order, slamming the orders on the table, refusing to return without the dessert menus, and showing us the her inner bitterness and dislike. The food? Probably ok.

One of a chain of 10 Italian restaurants in Romania this restaurant in the centre of Bucharest offers a very extensive and authentic taste of Italy. The large tree filled outdoor terrace is a delightful setting on a hot summer evening. Service is friendly and efficient. Portions are large, well cooked and presented and authentically Italian. Extensive wine list and... More

Ordered with my wife some homemade pasta which was incredibly good, beyond my expectations! I ordered salmon pasta and my wife ordered truffle pasta. Both of these dishes were beyond our expectations. The portions were generous too. Fine service, the price/quality ratio is ok, the prices could be a little lower, but the quality of the food is worth it.

We visited this restaurant with a group of colleagues and we had a good time. The place is pretty big and the atmosphere is also nice. Under the trees you can have a nice dinner and you will really enjoy the good foods. Prices not so expensive. Very good pizza and also very nice steak. Staff is eager to help... More

I went today to eat with a friend, pasta with wild mushrooms and truffle oil and a lasagna. Both dishes were terrible bad, the mushrooms were sour and the meet in the lasagna tasted like dog food. Furthermore there was a drunk customer, whom the waiters didn't kick out and so he took advantage of the situation and tried to... More

I had a great evening here eating a big and tasted pizza. Chicken with rice was also good. Prices are expensive and the service should be better. The trattoria is located in an historical beautiful old building and the open air terrace is very nice too.

I've been here in the second week of June 2016. We chose the restaurant for the good location and nice terrace. Food is ok, although nothing special. I was very disappointed with the condition of the restaurant: old furniture and wall paint, you could tell that it is the same since many years. Also the bathroom was in terrible condition,... More

The restaurant serves very tasty Italian food. The personnel is very kind and the orders are taken immediately. The restaurant is very spacious with outside tables in the summer. The prices are medium to high, but the portions are big enough.

It is an honest restaurant. What I mean by this is they are not saying they are making these chef foods or something fancy. Just normal, Italian food. I like the pasta here because I always get the same when I come here. No big changes in having the same dish, I love the classic pasta they serve. In the... More
