This place is stellar and the service is wonderful. Being Italian I appreciate a good authentic meal. The price is right for Norway. Make sure to try desserts as well. I enjoyed my first meal here.

Dinner with 4 colleagues in a lovely restaurant with good food and friendly service. The food was fantastic. A great atmosphere with a front of house staff that really know how to do a remarkable dinning experience.... Can't recommend highly enough.

We truly enjoyed our Italian evening with great waiter, super seating and so very fantastic food. What’s not to love about homemade Italian pasta and a tiramisu so delicious, I could not be stopped! We absolutely want to go back.

Slightly overrated in my opinion. Service is good and it tastes nice, but nothing special at all! The dishes looked quite boring actually.

I want to say that it was a very good experience. I like italian food and I was very happy to find such a good place here in the North. Pasta was perfect. Guests feel themselvs the most important in this place. I reccomend

Excellent food and service for a good price! I recommend "Tagliere Italiano" for starters and "Petto d'anatra al balsamico" (duck) for main course.

Had a 3-course dinner here including mostly sea food (scallops, sea bass). The staff is nice and knowledgeable. The portion size depends on what you get. My sea bass and one of my friends' seafood pasta dish was big and filling, but the ravioli dish...More

No parking that we saw, but it's located on a corner close to the main commons area in the city center, just a few blocks away from the National Theater, where I believe there's a subway stop.
