Menu looked promising but polity by very slow and surly service. Took ages for them even to even take our drinks order. Had to keep asking for items we had ordered that they hadn't brought out. No apologies. Food was fine but not worth the extra price they charged over other places. Very disappointing and wouldn't recommend eating here.

Got a table for two. Food took far too long to come out and tasted disgusting. The waiter was nice and polite I could see in his face that he knew the food was terrible. I tasted one mouthful and got up and left. My experience of good so far in Italy has been dreadful overpriced, tasteless and rotten.

It was the most terrible experience so far in Italy. The waiter brought us menus pretty fast, but he didn't ask if we want any drinks. Then to order we had to call him and ask for a water. He brought the bottle and throw it on our table without even opening the bottle. Then we ordered some fish and... More

Sign says food & drink outside however I was rudely told by a staff member that it was not possible just to order drinks despite the place being almost empty.

I tried a lasagna as main course. It was the smallest piece of lasagna I have ever seen. It was dry and not tasty..

Food was normal, nothing special. We were drawn in by the nice looking facade and the outdoor seating of the restaurant. Nice place for a drink (if you have time to wait for service). Should go somewhere else for dinner. The waiter was ok and nice to us, he notice that the service of food was slow, and when we... More

I was sitting for a beer with my friends while a girl asked the manager if she could use the wc and he rudely replied her to leave the place and go away. The girl obviously was shocked and me and my friends too of course. We will never ever come back here again!
