A little bit hidden in a narrow alley, opposite Telegraph hotel, this lovely restaurant is located. Authentical Italian.

This place was recommended by our tour guide and we booked in the afternoon for the same evening. Just as well as it was pretty full despite having three levels of tables. We had artichoke for starters, beautifully crisp. My wife had the pasta with Parma ham and vodka, again on our guide's recommendation. It seems an odd combination but it was delicious. I love liver so I had the fegato, which was cooked to perfection. Very nice atmosphere and pleasant, attentive service.

Was our second time here and were not disappointed. Pizza is generally a delicous food but here they make it just excellent. The waitress we had was also very nice and helpful.

We stumbled across this place recently when we were looking for a nice Italian restaurant to try. Having rejected a couple in the more busy parts where it was very noisy and the staff were 'pushy' to get you to come in, we came across this one. It was busy and we got the last free table outside. Service was quick and efficient. We had a lovely waitress who was happy to share a joke and not be in a rush. The food was excellent. Bruschetta was very nice. I followed up with carbonara whilst my other half had lasagne. We also were given some bread which was excellent. I had no room for dessert but the other half had a gorgeous looking tiramisu. Needless to say we went back to reserve a table for our last night in Tallinn. This time we were seated inside, there is a lovely atmosphere inside. Once again, the food was lovely. Service was a bit more brusque but still pleasant enough. Needless to say if we venture back to Tallinn, we will definitely visit here again.

Try the Alba... truffle heaven. Good size pizzas on a thin crispy base. Good selection of Estonian beers to try. Slight fly on the soup if you are eating outside is that the pizzeria is right on the tourist group trails.. so I was photographed a lot. Efficient and polite service...
