No doubt about it - the pasta is fantastic! Unfortunately, it arrived after a dirty martini that tasted watered down, tasteless olive oil served with bread and an appetizer of roasted octopus salad ruined by too much vinaigrette. I am a real foodie and after hearing all the hype about this place was a little disappointed. However, the quality of... More

On top of that the place was very cool and cozy and at the same time a nice atmosphere and the service was simply perfect.... More

What Happens when Rude Uni Student Play at Waiting Tables. The Bad: I was served by a total of 4 waiters. The system at this restaurant based on waiters running around serving all tables. There is no individual attention as you normally would get a classy Italian restaurant. The restaurant resembles more a bar than a restaurant and quite frankly... More
