This Italian restaurant is very busy but friendly. I had a pasta and tiramisu. The tiramisu was good. I will be back for more.

Best Italian Food in Oslo, without discussions. Also nice and competent staff, would criticise one thing: space....not enough space for enjoying the outstanding food....

The pasta was fresh indeed and the pizza is good . Crust is not too thick and I really like it . The house pour wine is kind of disappointing though so you might want to skip.

Not your pizza and pasta joint. This is a classic high-end Italian restaurant set up for multiple course dinners. Very fine Italian wine list covering many lesser DOCGs. Dishes are not standard - they have been inventive. Try the pheasant. Highly recommended. Good service which is also friendly and informative

If you want to find fine Italian food in Oslo, this is the real deal. Nice, fresh, tasty and creative food, good environment and excellent service. Basically all the staff is Italian, and you also see plenty of Italian clients eating and complimenting the food (yes, I´ve seen this and it wasn´t just once). This can only be a good... More

Went there with my friends for dinner. I think this restaurant must be one of the top Italian restaurant in OSLO, having lots of variety dishes and everything was so high quality. I heard this restaurant is run by Italian Norwegian family and the service there was so warm and friendly.
