I love the restaurant and the ambient and the stuff is very friendly. It is not a bad idea to do a reservation because sometimes they are full and you can stay without a seat. Food is tasty and T-bone steaks are delicious. Steaks are worth every single penny!

If I could give another star, I would. We arrived to a busy room, yet were immediately greeted by a cheerful waiter and given a table. They took our order and brought our food within the space of like 10 minutes, so you'd think maybe the food wouldn't be that great, but the pizza I had was no joke the... More

Location is not in the center of Ljubljana, but this is no problem. You can go by car, bus,...Restauration has a big parking place. Servis, food, staff are good/nice. The italian ambiance. Sometimes you need reservation. The place is good for big group and family. The prices are a little higher.

This restaurant is really stuck in the past. The menu is the same as it was 10 years ago, interior as well. But the real problem is the staff: forgetfull, uninspiring... they are not rude, but not helpful either. There are planty better options to eat in Ljubljana.

I eat here two times in the last month and it was good but I wouldn't say amazing or great. One time I had pizza and the second time risotto with lobster. I prefered risotto. It tasted very good while pizza was quite average for such a place and price. Service was professional but the atmosphere feels a bit snobby.

Thank Alenka Z
