“This is our spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

My husband and I have been eating here for over 12 years. We love the food and the cozy feel of the restaurant. It is good for a nice adult dinner out but comfortable enough for a family dinner with our son.

“Nice ambience but nothing else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

I wanted to like the restaurant as it is down the street but, from almost beginning to end, it was sub-par. The hostess forgot about us and our wait doubled. I could get over this but the food was pretty bland (I ordered pizza). The waiter told me there would be no substitutions when ordering because it was too busy. Dessert (apple tart) was soggy. These are just a few reasons. We won't be back. There are far too many better options in town.

“Tasty food in a warm and friendly spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had everything from soup to tiramisu. It was all delicious. The service was exemplary and the atmosphere cozy. We had lunch, but I think it would be even better for dinner.

“One of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

I had the best gnocchi at this restaurant, home made style. The salad was fresh and tasty. The service was friendly but not over the top.

“Parioli Hits the Mark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We were a party of eight (three children and five adults). The setting is quiet and romantic, so we were happy to be seated in the back away from other guest. Our server, Gulia was fun and accommodating of our fussy eaters. She also let the children split an entree. The food was delicious and we liked that the restaurant is conveniently located next to the Marriott.
