This is truly one of the worst 'Italian' restaurants I have ever visited. Don't get met wrong, the staff is friendly enough and the ambiance is adequate. But the quality of the food and wine is mediocre at best. The pasta certainly wasn't fresh pasta...More

Very nice option for quiet lunch, this place is tucked away in a small alley nearby Heumarkt. Efficient friendly service, good quality food. Set menus available at lunchtime (soup/salad, main course and dessert/coffee).
