The restaurant was very quiet but I didn't feel too isolated . The pasta was quite well done but too bland for my taste . The others in the group enjoyed steaks. Don't make this your first choice if you are more vegetarian by nature. The menu is limited.

We were recommended highly to this restaurant by our landlady. Unfortunately it was hot, noisy and cramped, to the extent that they put a couple at a table under the stairs.
