“We only had appetizers”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We only stopped in as we walked along the shopping district because we were tired and they had bruschetta on the menu. We had that and the soup of the day (Tomato with Basil). The soup was unbelievably good, and the bruschetta was good, but not great.

“Why eat Italian food in Iceland?”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Perfectly good, attentive service, reasonable wine selection. But, this restaurant is probably just too far away from Italy to offer you really good Italian food. I had a penne dish with (strangely) bacon and chicken in a tomato sauce. The garlic bread appetizer looked like a little pizza smothered in cheese. If I lived in Iceland, I might appreciate this diversion from Icelandic fare, but, as a visitor who had recently visited Italy, I found this variation on Italian cuisine to be less than captivating.

“Great place for dinner in the city center”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Stumbled into a great restaurant in Reykjavik city center. The Baccala (cod) entree was delicious. the fresh cod filet was best we've had on the island. The Tagliatelle pasta with shrimp was incredible. This quaint Italian restaurant (with Icelandic slant) offered window tables providing street views. The A-Torta apple dessert finished off our meal.

“Average, nothing more nothing less”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Our first night in Rekjavik we had to make a choice and this was it.

I had a chicken cacciatore type dish which was uninspired, my wife had lasagne - nothing more than adequate.

Kids being kids they had pizza which was thin-crust and looked god but which was merely runoff the mill.

The tomato sauce in all of the above dishes seemed to be watered down and rendered otherwise decent food basic and nothing more. Icelandic prices for average food.

The surroundings were OK. But the food wasn't anything to write home about. Average in every way. If you want average this this the place to go.

“Pretty standard Italian”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Simple menu, fish was really well cooked. Sat in the window watching the world go by so a great spot.
Only negative is it had the feel of a chain about it, perhaps just a little past its prime
