We stopped in for dinner one evening for our "date night" on our vacation. We went early, so there was no wait. The decor is lovely.

It took a while to get out order in, but what we ordered was delicious. The Icelandic lamb tenderloin, and the penne con pollo e pancetta were both excellent.

The service, oh, the service. I can't adequately express how hilariously bad it was. Our waiter was dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, while all the others were in black button downs and pants. He very obviously did not want to be there, and when we weren't ready to order within under 2 minutes of sitting down, we were ignored for a while, except when he literally tossed a bowl with bread ends in it on to our table. It seemed like we did something specific to annoy him until he started to do the same thing to nearby tables. I can only imagine the back story. Everyone else seems to have had excellent service, that night and other nights, so I'm assuming it was a one off.

Pretty authentic Italian food, great location and ambience. The service was good, the portion sizes were big and they had great bread to start us off. I'd recommend the place.

All restaurants in Iceland are pricey. I hesitated to spend so much for pasta but the food was really good, served hot, service impeccable, plate presentation was perfect. We ordered a small side salad which was ample for sharing. Two different pasta dishes (oil/garlic and meat balls). We shared a dessert (chocolate soufflé) which was beautiful and delicious. Also 2 coffees. The house wine was not that great.

Overall good classic Italian dishes. Extremely fast service which was nice. Only reason for 4 instead of 5 was the red sauce. It is more of a chunky sauce (which i liked) but had some over powering spices that I had mixed feelings about. Regardless, I'd go back, good food for sure. Prices are typical of any Iceland restaurant

The dining room is comfortable and decorated in Italian theme. The menu is good for the whole family including a kids menu. The service was nothing special but it wasn't bad either. The food was all very good and the prices are in the range of other sit down restaurants in the downtown area.
