Called late in the evening for a table and we were greatly accommodated. The spoken menu was a lovely touch and the food was equally nice. Fresh ingredients and cooked well. A real pleasure!

A small Italian restaurant, localized in the trendy St. Georg district. The owner cooks real Italien dishes - tasty without rigmarole. Not Italian gourmet food but authentic and made by good products. Had a nice thin sliced veal liver together with the best spinach since...More
