I have been there very often. I love in the area, if you want good service and authentic Italian cuisine you are at the right place. Friendly and adapt to your preferences. Bonne appetit!

I went for lunch during a day of the week. The service was not the worst, but certainly not memorable. The portions and the prices were fair, just like the restaurant. It is not a place I would avoid in the future, but is certainly not a place I am interested in returning on my next visit.

The venue is elegant and suitable for good profile dinner whether for couples, family and friends. Everything was very good. A bit pricy but worth it.

Never it has let me down, but maybe a bit impersonal - coldly friendly maybe (if the term exists). My last meal there was an excellent pan-fried filé of Meru for which the cook gets scores of stars.

They have great food here. The service was excellent and it has a fun atmosphere. I had the pasta with shrimp and it was great. There is a great selection here and it seems very fresh. Service was fast and very relaxing.

This is the second time I´ve been. The first time I got pasta and it was good. This time I got eggplant parmesan as did my mother (it´s an appetiser but we asked for it main-course size). My Dad got the fish soup and an appetiser portion of eggplant parmesan. Eggplant parmesan was not very good - there was little... More
