Great décor, all wood and grandeur. Wine was lovely as was the seafood pizza but the bill was a bit harder to swallow. Good Italian food but not the place for a cheap meal out. Good wine selection

We came to dine 4 friends and all of us just loved what we had ordered. We had mushroom soup, tortellini broth, pizza and foie gras with caramelized apples and everything was delicious. Nice atmosphere and accurate service.

Traditional italian restaurant in the centre of Riga city. The food is good, but not that good. Food and wine is very expensive and to expensive compared to the quality. Rather stiff and uninterested service staff.
