You will not find food like this anywhere in Italy: a fine national cuisine destroyed by adapting it to ideas of local taste. I tried to avoid the worst excesses by choosing a simple penne arrabbiata and just about recognised the pasta with ubiquitous red sauce as vaguely Italian. With the exception of one cheerful South American, the waiters look down their noses at the customers, barely disguising their disdain. To be avoided by anyone who appreciates real Italian food.

This is a nice restaurant, but fairly pricey. The wine is definitley overpriced (we payed 27 euros for fairly average wine) and if you have wine then expect to pay 40-60 euros for your meal per person.

THE GOOD
- A very plesent outdoor area (Definitely the best part)
- The food is quite tastey, although, I wouldn't call it authentic. We had far better when we went to Italy (Also my grandmother used to make far better Italian food).

THE BAD
- The sevice wasn't what you would expect from a classy restaurant - the waiters didn't seem to like english speaking customers very much - but we tried speaking a little French and Italian.
- It was expensive, but the food was reasonably good for the price. The wine was pretty bad for the price, we've had better $3 bottles from Australia - ouch!
