Had dinner here with a colleague and I must say it was excellent. Had to bruschetta as well as the fresh spaghetti with squid in squid ink. Both are awesome. Service was spot on, friendly and attentive. Would absolutely go here again.

We've visited this restaurant many times and had food from barely passable to outstanding. Quality did not seem to vary with the day of the week or type of dish ordered. Service has generally been excellent.

The service was excellent and everything I had was really good! We shared the cheese/meat/bread/olives appetizer (Stuzzichini) and the Carpaccio di Barbabietole salad. The T-bone steak (Costata) which was grilled to perfection. And the pistachio/hazelnut/nougat dessert (VASETTO AL PISTACCHIO E CIOCCOLATO) was unlike anything I've...More
