After hearing so many nice opinions about this restaurant, finally i had the chance to visit this place as well and try the food out myself. Restaurant situated in the center of Kaunas right beside the main street "Laisves aleja". The interior is quite nice and the place had visitors but was not too crowded.
I have ordered 2x Mussels in white wine sauce, some fries, 2x hot wine, a cappucino and a americano. For the desert i have tried in-house produced gellato (ice-cream) with taste of peanut butter and Panna Cotta (MilkJelly). The Mussels tasted great, fries were prepared from the real potatoes, not the frozen supermarket junk, hot wine was tasty, Illy coffee is always perfect. The deserts were that left me most impression... the Gellato was perfect. As a ice-cream lover, i can say this homemade ice-cream was indeed tasty. The Panna Cotta (MilkJelly) was without taste, and only the small peaces of sweet carrots. Overall that was nice experience, however, in my opinion and compared to other popular Kaunas places this place is overpriced. Really, i have paid 37 Eur for the lunch, whereas few month earlier this year, i have paid almost twice less for more or less similar lunch at Le Rouge. And hey it is Kaunas, not Vilnius.
You can pay by card / cash.
People with disabilities will have difficulty to visit this place as were are stares on the entrance.

We wanted to have better meal while driving from Bialystok - Riga and did short stop in Kaunas

I did choose this restaurant based on reviews and I can say that it was a good choice

My wife got duck, me beef and kids pizza. Everything was very well prepared and tasty. Atmosphere was nice and authentic (Italian).

Strongly recommend!

Service during summer time is terrible, only one person for full restaurant and bar, had to wait 45 mins for the drinks and service was extremely slow... I hope they will improve this.. Good luck.

This lovely Italian restaurant is well worth the visit. Atmosphere was romantic, food was good and the waiter was kind. With appertizers and dessert the check for two came to some 35€.

The first thing I enjoyed about this place was the coolness of the rooms on a very hot day. Then I noticed the interior, which was very stylish, not too fancy or ambitions, just what you would expect from an Italian family restaurant. The service was perfect - attentive, friendly and unobtrusive. The menu had a large selection of Italian classics and my only regret is that I had no time to come back another day to try more of them. I chose the chicken involtini, which was nicely presented on a bed of tasty carrot and gorgonzola puree with red cabbage. While the chicken was perhaps a tad dry, I really enjoyed the puree and the overall flavour combination was excellent. I also tried their panna cotta and it was faultless, not too sweet, with prominent orange flavours (possibly with a hint of limoncello) providing some necessary zing. The price level is moderate and certainly very good value for money.
