Very good, sometimes plates are a bit tiny but quality is always there. Price is in the average. A family restaurant, very nice atmosphere. One day we have been totally ignored, probably better clients than us arrived and we decided to leave the restaurant. We tried another time but finally we do not go there anymore.

This excellent restaurant, held by 2 brothers Bruno and Ivano, is a top restaurant for people who love genuine Italian food. Every week, the cook presents his suggestions which are always very refined and authentic. It is very family friendly and a great place to be with (lots of) friends, celebrate a anniversary etc... Price/quality is optimal.

As an Italian, I go there very often when I feel nostalgic and want real, genuine and fresh food.. Never disappointed, and always welcomed in this nice, elegant (without a fuss) place. I recommend it when people ask me for a good Italian restaurant. I know for seeing it that they get fresh diary products and vegetables directly from Italy... More

Nice restaurant, with modern look, located in a residential area. Staff is Italian and they serve a selection of Italian classics, inclusive of pizza and some variations with local ingredients. We were with a group of people, but service was fast and efficient. I had penne all’arrabbiata which were prepared al dente and tasted fine. Other dishes selected included steak... More

In common with another reviewer, we ended up here because the new Italian restaurant a few doors away was full. Previously, it had always appeared very busy but this time was two-thirds empty, which should have been a warning. We decided on pizza as the safe option but they were awful. We couldn't wait to leave.

This was a real find for me: an authentic Italian restaurant with wonderful fresh ingredients - some direct from Italy on the morning I was there. Just delicious. And the restaurant itself is very pleasant too: modern and airy, with an obviously devoted clientele (even at lunch). The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Almost like being back in Italy... More
