“Good but not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner with friends last night. We were the first in the restaurant and were graciously greeted. The service was just OK not overly attentive . The food however was traditional for the area and only exceptional as a result of the truffles that were available. The wine list was adequate. The decor was simple...just like the food. Simply "good but not great" and with the truffles And wine perhaps a little expensive!

“Good, not exceptional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The place is quite small and decoration is simple, lacking style. Service was average. One waiter very nice and attentive, the other simply did not care enough. The food was not elaborate, but nicely done. I had milanese risotto, followed by milanese veal and my wife had grilled fish with vegetables. Too pricey for what is offered at the place, but you will not leave the table totally disapointed, nor willing to come back again.

“High class in a rough neighbourhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Very good Italian kitchen but a little to stiff to be really pleasant. The restaurant was crowded when we arrived a Friday evening and throughout the meal you could sense that the waiters had to much to do.

“Wonderful Service, beautiful food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We loved everything about it. The ambience, music, layout of the
restaurant. The waiter, Marco, was fantastic. He spoke good English and was very attentive, without being intrusive. The food was superb and it was a full package. The best restaurant we found in Italy.
