“A typical Italian: Food is Great, Service is Good but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

I visited the place based on great ratings of TripAdvisors. I am very pleased that suggestions were right. This restaurant has delicious seafood. I ordered an Octopus salad which was well cooked still soft and easy to chew with a nice sauce (olive oil, lemon, mint) accomponied with boiled potato.
Main course was a Sea bass and black ravioli stuffed with mozzarella with a sauce of lemon, greenpeas and persil. Another successful Italian food.
But be careful about the wine. My friend asked for glass wine, waiter said that they only serve Sicilian wines for glass. At the end he tried to charge whole bottle despite of half was consumed with 3 glasses.
Other than wine case, everything was great and this restaurant is highly recommended.

“Good italian cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I was there lunch time and I wanted something simple. Asked for spaghetti napolitana (simple but amazing if done right). They do not have spaghetti which I thought was odd but totally fine with me (linguine worked too). Most italian restaurants in Frankfurt (not that I tried every single one but let's just say many...) always add insane amounts of oil. Horrible. Feels like the chef says, uh, taste like nothing... fine, add a gallon of olive oil and it should be ok.

So, to sum it up, it was a nice dish prepared pretty good (could have been a bit thinner but that may just be me). They also serve home made olive oil with bread as a starter. First restaurant where I have seen that. Pretty cool!

Service was very friendly, fast (wasn't packed) and it has the aura of someones living room and they invited you to dinner.

I took my colleagues to this place based on the recommendations on TripAdvisor.
Some of the food was good and especially the antipasti
The main courses were not well accepted and overall we were disapponited

“Small portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant had a really good atmosphere, really beautiful!
The food was good and interesting, I had ravioli with mozzarella and tiramisu for dessert. To bad though that the main course dish was very small!
Had a really good and romantic night there with my boyfriend.
