Very large area with plenty of space and good Night Atmosphere for casual dinning. In front of Atheneum it's a handy place to visit after a concert venue. Food is quite good but far from excellent considering the other Restaurants nearby. Better for beers and casual eatings

We had a nice late lunch here. Very good food, high pricing though. Polite staff but really hard to get their attention. Rather noisy and crowded with fake fancy rich people most of the evenings. The food was tasty but all in all the restaurant is not very welcoming.

Although the people were very pleasant, and the atmosphere of the location and building was cozy, due to the fact that this is a very big restaurant which can support very large groups, you can expect that the food and drinks served have a feeling of 'big kitchen'. Unsure how to describe it differently. If something is missing when served... More

they are missing a "character", rather than that they have good italian food with nice service, there is always a place, so you don't need to plan ahead.

This was recommended to us by our tour driver. He was a nice guy even if the tour was the worst I have ever been on, but then that is another story. Feel free to ask me about it. There were no outside tables available so we ate inside which was actually preferable to us since it was already dark.... More

This place is spot on. Great pizza and light salads. Very close to the park area and plenty of space inside and outside. The inside bit gets pretty smokey, so choose outside if they let you. The service was decent, but nothing special. I'll go again, that is for sure.

Although we waited 15 minutes before someone came to take our order, we have enjoyed the peace and beauty of the terrace. Spaghetti were not very good, but my friend's pizza was great. You can try.

A beautiful location but only stayed reputation. Three star food, waiters seemed too tired, mediocre services. Yet still notice the influx of foreign clients. It would have tons of stuff rebuilt and renewed.

We enjoyed the open outdoor patio, in spite of the smoking. But it seems there is smoking everywhere in Bucharest. My husband and I each ordered a salad and he had a pizza and I had the oven-baked pasta with bolognese sauce. The salads were quite large and very good - we could have easily split one. The pizza was... More

I go regularly and so far the food never disappointed me. The pasta is good and tasty and the quality/price is ok. The main problem is if you are a group it can take really long until being served
