    How can you bake an artichoke in fatty cheese and bechamel sauce? Not italian and not good! Pasta was ok..

    Octopus starter was very good, as was the pizza. My favorite was the ragu pasta.

    Lovely restaurant. Lovely staff. Long wait for food. Octopus starter was good. Burrata was nothing special way too cold. Pizza disappointing. The rabbit, peas with open Gnocchi was wonderful.

    The Cornetto pizza is amazing! I highly recommend anything created with their freshly made mozzarella.

    Still a good place . . . but my overall experience was not as good as it has been in the past. I can't put my finger on it, just a subtle decline in food, service and experience.

    Great decor, inexpensive yet sophisticated menu and great windows. Get the table by the window.

    Not great meal here. Stale breadsticks, too much cheese and frozen peas in carbonara :( came recommended by a person in town and all the reviews look good but something must have changed

    Não gostei; a comida não é boa, atendimento é eficiente mas não é nem um pouco simpático

    De entrada um pão italiano quentinho com azeite e ervas. Como prato principal Pumpkim Ravioli é sensacional acompanhado de um vinho tinto suave.
