Honestly, as someone who has many years' experience in the hospitality sector, the only criticism I could make about this establishment is that the portions are too big! The menu is not revolutionary - familiar dishes, but executed with a "twist" and an evident love of food.

Example 1: Tagliolini al tartufo - home made fresh pasta garnished with copious shavings of fresh black truffle and good olive oil. Simple, no frills, but good eating and excellent value (no supplementary charge, but priced at €25).

Example 2: Tagliata di manzo e tartufo - good quality beef with lots of flavour, cooked exactly to order and served with wild rocket, aged parmesan and a generous amount of shaved fresh black truffle (included accompaniment: sauteed potatoes, steamed broccoli and cauliflower). A full meal in itself, reasonably priced (€25).

Example 3: Delicious home-made desserts (e.g. ricotta and limoncello cake, pear and ricotta tart) made to a high standard – all too often, the desserts are the weakest part of a restaurant’s menu.

Wine list: exclusively Italian, not extensive, good price range (€25-€60 per bottle) but very informative, carefully selected and a perfect match (fizz, red and white) for a range of starters and main dishes.

Extras: Good coffee, excellent selection of special grappa.

Service: attentive and informative.

Environment: Up-market brasserie, art nouveau décor, everything at table as it should be.

I went to this restaurant with 3 friends. When you enter the restaurant you'll find out that a lot of detail went in the decoration.
We were welcomed like family(what did you expect in an italian restaurant).
We got a great round table.
The menu was presented on a board and on paper. The lovely waitress explained the board with so much passion and love, that we all went for her proposals. And IT was a hit.
I ate a stired egg-white with egg inside and accompanied with truffle.
IT was delicious. As maincourse i had linguine. Real italian dish.
Dinner and service exceeded my expectations!
