Good pasta. I ordered the squid ink, but the kitchen missed it and gave me red sauce. Maybe next time. A bit over priced for the food/atmosphere, but I'd go back.

Very nice staff, great atmosphere and the tastiest pizza margarita I've ever had. Pasta carbonara was also very tasty. Complimentary bruschetta and lemon ice were delicious, nothing more we could ask for. Highly recommended.

Je ne pense pas qu'il s'agisse du même restaurant. Celui que je cherche est soit Via Santa Teresa, soit via del Crocifisso. Merci tout de même
