I ordered a non alcoholic cocktail and it was nice and sweet. I also ordered some pasta, but they were too salty. I tasted the hribi risotto and also too salty. the service was nice, waiter was ok. For this price I'd say I tasted...better stuff. The profiterole was very very nice.More

We found this restaurant on our first visit to Iaşi in February of 2018 and lived it. On coming back this was our first stop. Tried some other local spots but this is still one of our favorites. The beef carpaccio is excellent and the...homemade egg pasta fantastic.More

I would have expected more since they want to be a refined restaurant in Iasi and the prices are kind of high.We waited a lot for the food to come and when it did i was cold and the waiters said that there is nothing...to do.After dinner we ordered 2 CHESSECAKE and they never came,apparently the waiter was busy and forgot.Ps:the staff should be more firendly and client oriented in teh end they work with people....More

Very nice and spacious restaurant, with Italian and Romanian dishes. I recommend only for business dinners, not with family. because is a little bit expensive.

We came me and my girlfriend for an early dinner at like 20:00 the restaurant wasn’t full but either empty some big tables I guess celebrating. We waited for 10 min till I asked politely for service to what I’ve been answered “we are very...occupied at the moment and it will take a lot of time” not a menu not sorry for not cleaning your table not a single nice thought for the client I feel bad for a place that looks nice from the outside and seems to have a potential Obviously we left disappointed and hungryMore

No intimacy, tables are for 6-8-10 persons, on the terrace, many dust from cars and noise from street, music to loud. They transformed a bookstore in a restaurant. The food wants to be sofisticated but it's a big crap. The wines are very very expensive...but are big fakes bottled with fake labels to make you think that tey have collection wines. Waiters were very rude when I noticed that the fish food I ordered was made from bad fish and the quality of wine. We wait for 45 minnutes to take the orders. I claim for the manager and the manager treated us with vulgar words . If you are well educated person, don't go there.More

It is the n' time we eat here! We always come back to enjoy time with family and friends over a great meal and the best wine! You have where to choose from, whether you want to eat, drink or have a desert! Lovely place,...beautiful set up and decorations!More

Lovely interior (classy, elegant, with wooden wainscots and wonderful chandeliers), very polite and professional staff. The food is fresh and very tasty. If you do not want to risk, go for their chicken skewers with potatoes and for desert lava cake with ice cream: simply...delicious. They also have many romanian wines you need to taste! Bonus - if it's warm outside you can enjoy a lovely view.More

we stoped for lunch. they offer quite a large menu. we had a soup as a starter and pasta as a main. The have a nice terrace across the botanical garden of the city. the service is polite, not really warm or friendly though (smiling...looks forbidden) also it feels a bit weird that the waiters sit down at a table in your sight while have nothing to do. We waited 15 min till we could order even the place was not busy. The food is good, solid pasta...waiting time for the food total normal. I have not been asked to write a review on tripadvisor.More

Not a place to eat if you are hungry unless you order half of their menu! I will not come again. Nice location.
