This is very much a high end Italian in terms of the cooking style and the quality of the food, service is relaxed and unhurried in a positive way, squid and carpaccio for starters followed by sea bass in a salt crust which was more than enough for the two of us, for pudding we had profiteroles wonderfull!

Our waiter was also helpful with the wine selection, would highly recommend this restaurant.

Reservations are a good idea if you want to sit on the upstairs terrace.

Excellent modern Italian restaurant in the center of Innsbruck. Don't expect the usual pastas and other dishes that you find at the most Italian restaurants. Here you enjoy elevated Italian cuisine by great cooks.

Only recently opened. The host "Peppino" is well known in the Innsbruck restaurant scene and has run many a good restaurant in the past. Modern decor in a historic building (partially showing the old city walls). In summer a roof terrace and a street-level taerrace too. Good service and reasonable wine.

We have been a group of 30 persons and we have been served in a friendly and pro-active manner. The starter (antipasto) was super-delicous. We had to wait quite a while for the main course, despite we have pre-ordered from two menu options. The tiramisu was one of the best I ever had. Wine recommendation: Raasol.

We managed to sneak in before a late reservation, yay for being an early diner! Our server was super nice and helpful. We each had a fantastic salad which was followed by one of their specials; fresh tagliatelle with fresh truffles. She convinced us each to have a portion because they were small and they were not small, they were huge and delicious and just incredible. If we had known how large they were we would have stopped there, but we had already ordered another special; grilled dorado for two. It came out whole and was deboned at the table. The fish was good, but c'mon, you can't follow a plate of fresh pasta smothered in fresh truffles and not expect to fall short. It was time to give up our table before we got dessert, so we asked for it to go and again, wow!! We had millefoglie which basically is a bunch of fresh cream with some pasty which is as decadent as it sounds. The restaurant is large, but was completely booked, so reservations are definitely required -- unless you're also a lucky early diner. Large scrumptious food with fantastic service, I definitely recommend a visit!!
