At the end of a group tour of the Baltic, three of us escaped to this delightful Italian restaurant for lunch. It's in the tourist area, but was a small, quiet spot for lunch away from the crowd. Grilled fresh sardines, mushroom & tomato bruschettas,...More

Beautifully decorated restaurant in the center of Tallinn. Food was good, but nothing special, portions were rather small and overpriced. Staff were not attentive and helpful. One waitress welcomed us upon arrival in a rather rude and aggressive manner for no apparent reason.

The food here was great, and well priced for it! The staff were keen to make things great. We turned up late in the evening and whilst quiet had a lovely evening.

Had a nice meal of foccacia bread followed by rabbit ravioli and fried calamari. The food was good - actually a bit better than good but the place is without soul - and the service matches that.

This place was recommended in “where chefs eat” and was such a disappointment. Lovely big building but the result was it lacked real atmosphere. Food was greasy and overpriced. Waitresses were average at best. Side dishes were greasy and small. Really poor meal.

We went here off the back of a recommendation from our hostel (she said it was cheap and easy) unfortunately this really wasn’t the case. The restaurant itself, very nice. However the meals are quite expensive for what they are, I’m not usually that fussed...More

We hadn't planned to eat Italian in Tallin but very pleased we found this restaurant. From stepping inside the door we admired the building, dates back to 14th centuary. The menu was full of tempting dishes, eventually choosing the stuffed squid. It was delicious. Only...More
