Dispirited that is pricey sometimes is quite good but sometimes it's disappointing. Like today I think that the chef by mistake was thinking a lot about something while he was pouring the oil in the soup. Or the chef wasn't in good mood, not the...first time. Plus the oil it smells like like out of date. I will never use their services.More

I ordered pasta carbonara, thinking that it was made the traditional way, meaning the sauce was made out of eggs and parmigiano. I was under this impression because the menu said as much. However, when the food came, I was surprised to find out that...the sauce was made out of cream. It was eatable, but not what was advertised and what was expected of an Italian restaurant with such a high rating.More

This is an excellent Italian restaurant. The chef is actually from Italy, Milano. The bruschetta is fresh and crispy. The Carbonara is fantastic, as good as anything you would get in a fine restaurant in Roma. The food is so good you overlook the inexperienced...server.More

We loved this spot. 20 min fast walk from centre of town. No frills but excellent pizza. Swift and friendly service with an extensive menu. Thoroughly recommend getting out of centre of town for good and relaxed eats.
