“Pas mal!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Sunday evening, six restaurants i found closed. So I was happy to find this one open and willing to give me a window place.
Hm, within three minutes, four waiters offered their help by chosing.
Wines some not many by the glass, winecellars not mentioned, found being alone half a bottle montepulciano d abruzzo, dragani, pas mal, fir about 15 euro.
Ravioli stuffed with mushrooms were thrown on a plate with ammole sauce. They derved a better look, but the taste was great.
This Italian restaurant, with immigrant cooks not from Italy, is offering a very nice ambience with its open kitchen and its menu on offer. Giood taste not very cheap but very reasanable for what it is and so much better than the tourist traps.
Be wise, come on time if you made reservations and dǐont order all different plates!

“Best pasta outside of Italy”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Beside Italy - this is the best pasta place I have ever ate at in a long time. Decent price, polite service, knowledgeable wait staff. I would recommend to everyone. I love to discover small, clean and excellent restaurants where locals also visit.

“Great restaurant, wrong time”
Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

It's a very popular restaurant, which is understandable, because the the food was great. However, we made the mistake of going there around nine o'clock in the evening, which turned out to be a huge mistake. The is very small and was packed with a line waiting for a table. We were told it would be around 15 minutes wait for a table, which we decided would be fine. The huge problem, however, was that we ended up waiting for an hour for a table and then quite some time before the food was served. They were way over capacity. To sum up: good food at an ok price, but stay away it's full or if you're going there from around 7 to 10:30.

“Good Italian”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We stumbled upon this restaurant after eating at Comptoir de la Gastronomie ( good also) as I noticed a big line outside the door. It was a good Italian, home made, simple restaurant that my kids (3 teenagers) liked. Also, not typical fare, so they had to try something different than the usual American- Italian. It was busy, small, but fun because I like a busy restaurants. Go early, and you won't wait in line. Its simple good food.
