Nice little restaurant and friendly service, however, we didn't particularly enjoy the food. The pasta of both the carbonara and the Amatriciana we ordered was good, but the bacon which was borderline burnt in both, didn't taste like bacon anymore and ruined the taste. This...More

This small Italian restaurant can be difficult to find, tucked away in the Old Town. The food was good, but to be fair for the cost charged, nothing spectacular. Main course was Seabass, which was served as a full fish we then filleted ourselves. This...More

Fresh ingredients, impeccably prepared. Recommend the buffalo mozzarella-the tomatoes tasted like summer. Cacio e pepe was delicious-pasta perfectly cooked with wonderful flavors. Not too expensive for Switzerland. Highly recommend. Good for business-small restaurant, not noisy.

The pasta didn't look home made, it just taste like at any normal restaurant. The carbonara was very thick and sticky, nothing special. We asked for the cheese which never arrived. All was really not with amore. Finally, the price was to high for that...More

I showed up 20 minutes before the restaurant opened for lunch and the manager happily sat me in the best seat in the house. I ordered the menu option for 28CHF which included salad, rigatoni carbonara and pear cream cake for dessert. FABULOUS. I honestly...More
