Compared to VIP, or happy italy this is a way better deal, way better food. Overall i like this place much more. Then again it is a self served restaurant....

I was pleasantly surprised by the freshness of the food and the quality of the ingredients. The pasta is cooked before your eyes and the sauces are prepared while you are waiting. Good value for money. Try the Piatto Antipasti. Better than many restaurants I went to in Italy.

My husband & I were in this district for a few days with friends. We dined here twice. The concept has been outlined by other reviewers - we loved this concept of dining, it's a change from the norm. Thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas and pasta dishes that we tried. It's great that the pasta is cooked in front of your eyes, makes it taste even better. A great idea indeed!!

This restaurant is not for you if you love to be waitered on for every whim. At the entrance you receive a card per person with which you can pick up your foods and drinks.
After picking a table, you can join the back of the queues at the anti-pasti, pasta or pizza counter.
When leaving, the cards are scanned and the appropriate checks settled.

All dishes are made fresh in front of you, which does make for somewhat longer queues in front of the anti-pasti and pasta counters. Pizza's are also made fresh, but are placed in the oven. This waiting time can ofcourse be spend at the table, so that no line occurs there.

If eating with multiple persons, expect either to eat at different times or be a master at planning in such a way that you reach the front of the pasta queue when your partners pizza is taken out of the oven...

In short, the food was very good. But the card system seems more suitable in a buffet style setting; smaller dishes where people can get more whenever they want.
