The food was delicious, we had pasta for the first plate each and we shared a meat second plate, the food arrived really fast. My husband had two beers and he said they were really good. We also had a dessert. We had a really good time and it closes late.

This place was so different , food was great, decor was so different but the vibe it gave us was great. Felt like you were in some kind of underground tavern. Your eyes do have to get used to dim light though as at night it gets dark in there

We visited as a couple on the TripAdvisor recommendation and we were not disappointed. It's a small, darkly lit, atmospheric restaurant where we felt very welcome. The food was good, we had pork shank and wild boar, a dessert and a bottle of wine and it was less than €45. It was a very, very nice evening.

We found this place on Trip Advisor, and we are so glad we did! You wouldn't know it was there if you were just walking around. But they have some of the best food in Italy-- german inspired. The inside is dark with candles for light, so the ambiance is amazing. We ordered an appetizer and also had 2 entrees,... More

We had an amazing night out with friends and we came back. It might seem as another bar, but the decorations, environment and music, and off course the amazing good food makes this place one of a kind on the area. It's a diferente plan to go out and try out the food and beers that they have.

Dining in a good atmosphere and good music. Would surely come here again if in the neighborhood. Food was very good and the service was enthousiastic about their own concept and that's good too :-)

Stayed one night in La Spezia and read good reviews for this restaurant. Very different non traditional atmosphere and food. We had the wild boar with polenta, pork with potatoes and beans, and beef with peas and potatoes which were all flavorful and delicious. Comfort food at its best. Well worth a stop if you want a break from traditional... More
