“delicious food but more of a bar than a restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

great arrabiata pasta. the pizza was good too. the only thing i didn't like about this place was the fact that it didn't have that many tables. there were maybe like 5 or 6 small square tables. it seems like they wanted it to be more of a bar with italian food for snacking- which is a pity because the food is really tasty. they have a great chef and the staff is super nice and accomodating. as constructive criticism, i'd advise them to print out some menus.

“amateur pseudo italian...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

it was not bad but was far from deserving being called italian.
pizza was all-right. pasta wise there were not many options and not authentic at all. the vegetable lasagna was particularly poor as it had only carrot and mushrooms (in any case tasteless, all subdued to the cheese's flavor).

attention was really willing but almost as bad as willing.

can eat there but don't if you can help it.

PS: reading reviews now it is evident that they've cheated comments with tons of 1-review-users pointing it was excellent... should be honestly banned.

“authentic italian cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

The dishes I ordered there just blew my mind! I had pasta, a salad, a pizza and tiramisu. Everything was very delicious. The best pizza in Bilbao so far. Unfortunatelly there is a disadvantage. I disliked their system of menu del dia, because if you want to take it and pay 10 euros only, you need somebody to share the meal with. They bring an only portion of each meal you ordered so you have to divide it between you. The funny thing is that each of you have to pay 10 euros. I don't really like sharing my dessert with a friend and eat it from 1 bowl. Despite that issue everything was very good. Polite service, nice atmosphere and relaxing music. Skilled italian Chef who also serves the dishes. I'll certainly go there another time.
