“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

We ate here last night and we were very impressed. The food was delicious, the service excellent and it was good value for money. The only 'downside' was when we got the bill and they had charged us for a more expensive bottle of wine than we had ordered but they quickly rectified it when we told them. We would definitely go there again.

“Impeccable quality and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

I've been there with my wife, as she suddenly felt like eating pizza.
Therefore, we ordered a pizza with salami and a pasta (pappardelle) with wild boar sauce.
Before we got our main dishes, we were presented a free appetizer (meatballs garnished with rucola, some parmesan cheese and tomato sauce) and some bread, and they were both delicious.
The pizza was not exceptional, but still fairly good. Our pasta was delicious, and the portion was just right: the boar meat was so tender that it would melt in our mouth, and there was very little salt in the sauce. As a result, the pasta was quite sweet, BUT it came with a huge pot of grated parmesan cheese. This way we could adjust the saltiness of our pasta by adding as much cheese as we liked.
The service was just impeccable and quick. The waiter was very nice and asked if we enjoyed our meal at the end (a very simple and important thing that many waiters neglect to do). The price was a little over the average, but totally justified if you consider the food quality.
Summary: maybe not the place to go if you are looking for fantastic Naples style pizza (even though the pizza is still fairly good), but an exceptional restaurant if you want to try refined pastas (with wild boar or truffle, for example) and enjoy being served by competent and friendly staff. Thumbs up!

“" Cara" vita...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Nice location, nice service. Food ( I took the gamberoni and my friend lamb) was ok, but nothing you can not get in other Italian restaurant. The tiramisu at the end was too small for the price. I think we paid too much for the quality we got.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Ive been here twice now and both times have been incredible. The menu is great, however im pretty sure that on the 2nd trip we didnt even look, we left it with the waiter to pick our food after a short conversation around what we liked! Safe to say the outcome was fantastic.
Im vegeterian and so eating in Germany can sometimes be a pain, however not with places like this to be found! We sat outside both times which was very nice.
