The only problem with this restaurant is that the tables are so close you could almost bump elbows with someone at the next table. The food and service are outstanding. Highly recommended for a great meal...but not for a special celebration unless you are a group and will not be distracted by the noise around you.

We were recommended this little gem by our hotel receptionist and we were not disappointed.

Prices were on the steep side like most things in Iceland, however the portions and quality justified the price tag.

Starter: none

Main: tortellini - probably the best tortellini I have tasted. Generous portion size, fresh ingredients and extremely tasty.

Dessert: Italian chocolate cake. Massive slab of moist rich chocolate cake with whipped cream and fresh fruit - very satisfying.

My partner, a vegetarian, was also extremely pleased given she chose the gardienia pasta and was also very pleased.

Very pleasant waitresses and friendly atmosphere.

This is an excellent restaurant, with traditional Italian food. It is a great choice for particularly picky travelers, looking for a taste of home. I got a seafood pasta dish, that was originally supposed to come with a meat sauce, that I switched for an Alfredo. It was good, but not great. The meal was definitely enhanced when paired with a white wine. It was an excellent, filling meal. Slightly on the pricy side, for a fairly basic meal. The restaurant was extremely busy, which takes away from the experience a bit, but it is a good sign.

Even though my husband and I shared two different plates and had exactly the same food, hee thought it was excellent, and I found it quite plain and boring. The tortellini could very well be storebought and the ham was like sandwicham! The crust on the pizza was thin and tasteless - but then again my husband liked it a lot.
Other people must like it too, as there were plenty of people and it was impossible to get a table for Saturday night!
