This restaurant was recommended by an Italian friend so we had high expectations; sadly we were disappointed. While the food was perfectly adequate, the service was really poor. From beginning to end, our waiter seemed genuinely miserable to be serving us. Strangely, as all other tables were offered delicious looking desserts from a trolley, we were not, and were left to choose from a limited selection in the menu. With a different waiter this would have been a better experience, but there are definitely better place to eat.

One of the worst food experiences I've ever had. Terrible... our waiter couldn't explain anything about the food. WHEN THE FOOD FINALLY ARRIVED it was undercooked , tasteless, . The fettucine artichoke was all stuck together!! If it wasn't for the parmegaean it would have been uneatable. NO FLAVOR AT ALL
The roast lamb was tasteless AND JUST LOOKED TERRIBLE AND TASTED BLAND AND NOT TAKEN CAR OF...
ONE OF OUR WORST FOOD EXPERIENCES IN HISTORY!!

Tasty, crispy and salted to perfection. Worth the stop while exploring this part of the city. Enjoy a side suppli as well...a small fried rice ball with tomato sauce and mozzarella....yum. Nice mid-day snack.
