Very cosy and spacious. Nice atmosphere and tasty food. The service is a bit slow but friendly. Price range is even below average for the quality of the food in my opinion.

I've walked past this classy-looking restaurant several times over the last fortnight, and popped in tonight as it looked quiet. And indeed it was, until 7:30pm when a noisy party of 12 arrived and other tables were rapidly filled. So much for tranquility and peace!

The menu is extensive, covering the usual Italian fare supplemented by some more unusual game dishes, including venison and pheasant choices. There's also a blackboard on the wall with a reasonable list of daily specials, running the breadth of the cuisine from surf to turf. Nothing bland or uninteresting here.

As is my usual practice, I headed straight for the Saltimbocca alla Romana and was not disappointed. Often, it's beaten to a pulp and so thin you could read the newpaper through it. Not so here! Rich veal, topped with crispy prosciutto and the distinct flavour of sage, accompanied by roasted new potatoes and perfectly al dente, colourful mixed vegetables. And to top it off, a 9/10 Tiramisu which could have achieved top marks with a touch more Marsala.

With two waiters serving that many covers, a slight pause in service is acceptable but it needed me to initiate the dessert order when I felt it should have instead been offered.

Nevertheless, the speed of delivery of the order was swift and general attentiveness was good.

Saltimbocca - €19, Tiramisu - €6, Latte Macchiato - €3. Good value, too.

This is honest italian cooking at its best with service and value to match. I would highly recommend for a business lunch.

Two starters one main course dish:Tarbot .
Proseco, fine and tastefull.. white wines as qell.
Starter tuna with sesame was good,fresh and nice. (11,50)
Other starter a selection anti-pasta misto was a poor selection of vitello tonato (nice) some roasted eggplant, paprika, mushrooms marinated (nice), one scampi. (10,50)
Other starter tuna with sesame and union compote.( nice)
Main dish tarbot with limoncello sauce tasted mushy old..so I had to ask to give back.
As replacement asked for tuna too. Got a larger (tuna) plate of the tuna starter. For the price of the tarbot (22.50).
Overalm quite simple avarage, still regretfully not to recommend.

Reataurant close to seestern Ubahn, 10 minutes. Though one Ubahn stop further Belsensplatz more restaurant choices.
