The food was certainly okay and one of the two servers was good. The decor is a bit odd and the choice of plates (yellow flowers) was also strange. If you want wine by the glass, the choice is the house red or the house white; I had the red and wasn't impressed.

If I were stuck in a much smaller town, I'm sure I'd be happy to stumble across somewhere like this. In Aberdeen, however, there are a number of better restaurants nearby (Moonfish, La Stella, Bistro La Bonne, Rustico) that are in the same price range.

The cost of the chicken supreme is outrageous, with low quality ingredients and lack of taste. A fast food chain would have been more preferable. I would.not recommend.
Pleasant staff and interesting decor.

Excellent place to eat in Aberdeen. Just off Union Street and 5 mins from Bus/Rail Stations & Union Square shopping centre. The food is excellent and just right size portions. V Good atmosphere but on my most recent visit it was quiet being a Monday. If you like italian you will enjoy!

Still reeling from this experience. I naively thought that a pizzeria would be able to make a pizza. It's not that hard. Well fair play Casa Gabriele, you showed me. Having waited interminably for a pizza I was surprised to be served with the charred remains of a frisbee. I was told they had run out of dough, that hadn't deterred someone from cutting a piece off the edge of my "food." I can only assume that either they hate themselves or it was some sort of sick joke. I cannot fathom that anyone would voluntarily eat one of these pizzas. I had the blood pressure of an 18 year old Olympian before I entered this place, the high salt levels in the olives and the pizza almost put me in a saline induced coma and I am battling to save my liver. Don't eat here. Unless you are mental or a masochist.

Visited with friends on a Saturday night, restaurant wasn't very busy and was served very efficiently. All of our starters were really nice, plenty on the plate. Our main courses arrived and my meal was not cooked properly, the meat was still raw, owner came and whisked the plate away and returned a few minutes later with a fresh meal about three sizes bigger than the original, obviously to make make up for the raw food. but was really nice tasting. Wine was really nice and our table was by the window which had a good view of the centre of Aberdeen.
