Very good location close to Royal castle and Ibsen museum. Calm atmosphere for couples and small groups. Italian food with good quality. Good service and average prices for this type of restaurant. Our group of four enjoyed the evening.

We just dropped in on a weekday evening. Although we had not reserved a table, we were warmly welcomed and placed at a nice table. The atmosphere is friendly and the service excellent. The food was amazing and really good.

A few meters from our appartment, this Italian restaurant was a nice pick to avoid walking too long in Siberian temperatures ! Good food, warm welcome from real Italian boss and waiters, everything was fine, e.g. well cooked pastas. Of course, you are in Oslo, so the prices are well above what you would pay in almost any other place in Europe, including Paris.

Our plane was delayed so we didn't get to the restaurant until 21.45 on a Monday night. It was still relatively busy and at no time were we rushed despite being the last diners by the end of the evening. The menu is not hugely extensive but everything that we ordered was cooked to perfection and one of my friends ordered a dish that was not on the menu but that did not phase them at all. The Chianti matched our steaks to perfection. I would also like to put in a word for our very personable young waiter who was as good as you can get. Highly recommended.

We booked a table on a weekday. The restaurant was not full of customers, but I guess it would be smart to make a reservation if you want to be certain to get a table.
The service was very nice. The waiter was attentive and was refilling our glasses with both water and wine throughout the entire meal.
The waiter had good knowledge of the menue and explained and answered all our questions.
The dishes were nicely presented and tasted very well. The only negative was that I found the dishes to be a bit on the small side.

I would rate this restaurant to be an up scale Italian restaurant, suitable for both business and romantic couples.
