We had a very pleasent Italian eating experience in Tallinn. Just by coincident we came cross this jewel of an Italian eating places when walking the streets of Old Town Tallinn. Very charming informal dining room, although quiz smal; and a wine cellar downstairs. Webside not see the Wien celler, though. We had a three course meal, and we were quite satisfied except for the Mineastone soup, which I found was lacking in taste. Maybe it had been on the stove all day long ... Good selection of wine by the glass, and helpful and knowledeable waiters made it a memorable evening.

On a recent holiday to Tallinn we were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the apartment we rented.
We weren't disappointed.
Great food, attractively presented, in a italian Trattoria, traditional and relaxed atmosphere. The chef, Angelo, is clearly passionate about his menu, the time to explain each item clearly. He also knows his malts! Near us, other italian families and locals. We promise a review: a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Real italian touch!

Had a afternoon lunch here in a terrace as weather was so nice. Luckily there was one free table. I ordered fresh Bufala Mozzarella with salad, arugola, cherry tomatoes and olive oil. One of the best bufala mozzarellas I've got! Wife had pasta which was excellena also. Nice atmosphere, quiet small street, good service. Real small piece of Italy in Tallinn!

I was there sunday with a group of friends,two of us tried the spicy rigatoni with "Nduja" ,one carbonara and the last minestrone,everyone was amazed by the taste. My rigatoni were delicious,spicy as I required,plenty portion,juicy tomato sauce and high quality of pasta manifactured with bronze ( it takes better the sauce and has a better taste than commercial ones)... OUTSTANDING RESULT!!!
We went for a quick dinner and turned into an amazing unique experience.
Staff was ok but one young waiter put a little bit too ice cubes into my "chinotto" (italian beverage similar to coke),but plenty forgiveable,he served quickly and was friendly.
Interiors are classic "italian trattoria" style ,simply,folk but cosy,nice friendly enjoyable atmosphere.
I talked with the chef and he suggested as dessert "crostata" cake,perfect ending for that dinner... SURE THIS PLACE WILL BE SOON A MUST IN TALLINN.
