The atmosphere of the venue made this place special, with ornate ceiling, columns and plaster work. A fine collection of antiques, sculptures and dramatic lighting created an enchanting environment. Staff were really friendly and created an an ambience for relaxation for all nationalities.

This resturant is one of the best for friendly service and great food. We ate twice here; on our own and with new friends we met at our Hotel.

It's easy to pass this osteria by as signage quite discreet. We are in old library which was nicest setting. Food good but service and ambience better. Enjoyable dining experience right in heart of city.

This is a regular Italian restaurant.....not just for tourists. I don't live there but it should be open most of the time. I checked google maps it and it was open when the camera drove by. It is not American... More
