The food here was great, and well priced for it! The staff were keen to make things great. We turned up late in the evening and whilst quiet had a lovely evening.

Had a nice meal of foccacia bread followed by rabbit ravioli and fried calamari. The food was good - actually a bit better than good but the place is without soul - and the service matches that.

This place was recommended in “where chefs eat” and was such a disappointment. Lovely big building but the result was it lacked real atmosphere. Food was greasy and overpriced. Waitresses were average at best. Side dishes were greasy and small. Really poor meal.

This restaurant is part of the "Sparkling Group" and is supposed to be good, but unfortunately this is not the case. Boring atmosphere, average food (i cook better scallops) and a little bit too low value for money. Funny waiter brought glasses of wine without...More

Great place to spend a summer afternoon on the terrace and eat tasty Italian food and wine. Everything we ate and drank was really good. The place looked really nice indoors as well and would probably be a nice place for dinner. Good selection in...More

Alkuruuat hyvät mutta pääruoka pettymys. Hinta suhteessa laatuun kohtalaisen huono. Näsäviisas tarjoilija ei parantanut asiaa. Emme menisi uudelleen. Prices were too high compared to quality. We would no recommend this place.
