Description: Pigro is a tyipcal Italian restaurant. Our interaly homemade meals came from the traditions of differents regions of Italy, but mostly from the northern ones, where our chef's born. The place is meanted to be like a typical Italian "trattoria", where good food, music and a warm aura are melted to make you experience a taste of Italy.

“Very good all around....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

We actually went twice in one day. I would highly recommend the spinach ricotta ravioli and the gnocchi, both pesto and bolognese. Salads were large, fresh and impressively assembled with very nice presentation and colors.
The atmosphere is refreshing, 80's revival hipster minimalist, an easy place to sit and relax, conveniently located and just a whisper quieter then the nearby streets a few meters away. The menu is well balanced and has something for everyone and the portions are really generous, representing a good price/value especially given the quality.. The kitchen obviously has its act together. Service is attentive, quick and friendly. This is probably the first place I would go when we return.

“Freshly cooked, great taste”

We had a beef lasagne and ricotta spinach ravioli. Both dishes were made with home made pasta. Great taste and highly recommended. Espresso was not amazing, but good.

The food was outstanding with lots of vegetarian choices.
Highly recommend paying this wonderful place a visit!

“do not miss this, no lo pierdes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Queria escribir que este restaurante es muy unica y excellente. You will be absolutely pleased with whatever dish ordered. Very reasonable, and the right portion size for every meal. Nothing was wasted in my case and hopefully, pizza is not on the menu but it entices you to discover fine cuisine in great company with their staff help. Yo quiero repetir, esto es un placer muy recommendo. Lo vas a encantar!
