We had dinner at the location near the theatre. The food was average as was the service and higher pricing than the quality of food. They have a couple of other locations which looked identical as was the menu.

Good choice for Argentinian style pizza, Service was a little slow, though the restaurant was packed for lunch.

We enjoyed an incredible lunch at this restaurant. The service was really good and they were very attentive to our needs. Really recommend the fettuccini boscaiola for anyone that goes there, and don't forget the tiramisu for dessert!

It is a kind of "fast food trattoria". With "fashion"music to speed up your time in the tables. I had to wait more than 6 minutes to a waiter finally arrive to the table and not before I asked a man "in charge" for so.

We found Il Gatto under a road bridge within a short walk from our hotel. It was late and we were tired and jet-lagged so were looking for something friendly and not too serious. The restaurant next door looked serious and expensive and the Head Waiter beckoned us in. From this point his cheery service was almost relentless. Tiredness and... More

I went there with my parents for a quick cheap lunch guided by reviews online and got really disappointed. The lunch menu had no variety and it was not good. Service was also very disappointing, took too long for everything. Would not recommend.
