We returned to this place after 2 years for dinner.

The restaurant has two rooms: the first with the pizza oven is the one we prefer –nice authentic Italian feeling with different art on the wall in a basic, but very atmospheric art nouveau-like restaurant styling. The second room is located next to the first one and has a slight different style, more modern.

We had the tomato-mozzarella salad and the (large portion of) garlic bread as starter –both of them were great and very delicious. Recommendable! We also had pizza, which was as delicious as we remembered it to be. You can watch the guy behind the bar prepare it and watch it bake in the stove while already having your glass of wine. Why not 5 points then? Glasses were not clean (food or whatever rests on them), we had to exchange them. And we unfortunaltey did not get the table we kindly asked for when making our reservation in advance......

But besides that we again enjoyed it very much and would come back for a third time!

We only had the pizzas here with salad and garlic bread. They were delicious. The restaurant was busy with efficient service.

Great location is probably included in these overrated pizzas they serve. Real disappointment as I had big problems wanting to finish this overvalued meal. Sorry. Never again.

We tried this restaurant on our first evening in Reykjavik. The food was good and the service is friendly although other than pizza and pasta the rest of the menu is not that extensive. I doubt you'd have a bad meal here but nothing to set the world alight either.

We arrived late to the city, we checked in a wandered down to the harbour to breathe in the fresh, cold air. This restaurant serves dinner until 11.30pm so we went in around 10pm and found a few other tables with customers from other countries. We had lamb (of course!!), salt cod risotto and my daughter had spaghetti carbonara. We enjoyed every morsel of food washed down with Tuborg (not my daughter!!). Service was friendly and helpful, this is what you need when you are new to town, tired from travelling and in need if sustenance. Lovely memorable meal. Highly recommended!
