Average - good service Average food Rather pricey - better value elsewhere Did I mention 9 Euro for a litre of San Pellegrino (fizzy water)? OK it is shown at that price on the menu.

Small atmospheric restaurant with good quality food. Don't eat here if you want a quick meal! The pizza and pasta was very tasty. The staff were helpful in describing the dishes in English. Did not accept visa or MasterCard so bring cash.

The food was average - what was described as "fresh tomato" with spaghetti was in reality just a bland tomato sauce, but what really put us off was at the end when the staff refused to accept our credit card. No warning of that policy...More

A nice selection of dishes with good vegetarian options. Bruschetta with an original layer of mozarella on top, very nice, 8/10. Then rotolo, a roll out of the oven with pasta vegetables and abundant, heavenly spiced tomato sauce, 9/10. My partner ate spaghetti al "roodbaars",...More
