I happened to find L'Officina by chance and i am glad i did. The apertivi alone were delicious and when i decided to order a secondi, it was really creative and tasty. The red wine was great too and once i relaxed onto the place (dining alone, away with work) - i thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. Look forward to returning as part of a holiday text time. P.s. Music there was great, shame they didn't know what was playing however it really added to the atmosphere.

The atmosphere is modern although not especially original if you're used to urban dining. Nice view over the kitchen, at the expense of a somehow compressed dining area. The menu is creative with solid connections to the regional , interesting use of humble ingredients, and a few Greek dishes. Overall the flavors are non obvious even if not too sparkly. Probably too spicy for the average palate of the locals and too bland for palates more used to rich flavors, but overall an experience of value. Limited choice of wine vaguely motivated by considerations on organic production. The service is rushed, careless, and unacceptably forgetful of the customers' needs. Multiple mistakes with the timing of dishes, such as a first and second course served together to the same guest. Sommelier was incapable of spring a wine clearly gone bad. The way dishes are described to the guests does not make justice to the good flavors and the effort on creativity.

Try to get a table where you can view the kitchen! I have been 3 times to this restaurant & enjoyed a different kind of food, inventive, not often seen in Italy. Service a little slow but I loved it everytime I have been.

We went to this restaurant following a friend's suggestion. What a terrible dinner! Very small portions and bad quality of food and service. Took us 2 and 1/2 half hours to eat and nobody seemed to know what they had to do. Servers very short and non pro. Never again.
