I started my meal with tomato cream soup, then roasted lamb chops with potatoes and grilled vegetables, followed by raspberry sorbet for dessert. It was delicious and presentation was excellent. The service staff were excellent - very efficient - but they appeared stressed so weren't chatty/warm. The evening would have been perfect had it not been overshadowed by one of... More

I stopped in for a pizza for carry out based on a recommendation from my hotel. The restaurant looked very nice, but I needed to eat in my hotel room so that I could finish work. I ordered my pizza to go, and talked to the bartender as I waited. He was very friendly. I asked him if they had... More

It is all true, great food, fun servers, wonderful atmosphere. Make a booking online, as they place is popular. There was a group of 30 behind us that came in just about the same time, but did nothing to diminish the wonderful service or food.

If it was only for the interior and the service, this restaurant would earn itself 5 points. Very nice dining experience, friendly and attentive staff. However, the food was not consistently good. Starters were simply delicious and raised expectations the main courses couldn't fulfill. I had Saltimbocca alla Romana, which I had a lot better in many Italian restaurants. So... More

Four of us ate here on a Monday evening as part of a business trip. The food was excellent and the service was also very attentive. They have an extensive wine list with some high quality choices.

The best meal in our trip to Switzerland. (honestly, swiss food is nothing to write home about). However, we've traveled to many countries, and the vongole pasta here is fantastic. Staff and cuisine truly authentic from Italy. Eat here!

We didn't have a reservation and just got lucky with the timing and were able to get a table. My husband and I opted for the menu of the day and were not disappointed at all! Everything was delicious and we shared a bottle of wine that was perfect. My favorite was the mushroom ravioli that we started with. The... More
