Been there once and really appreciate that!A gorgeous pasta out of the menu and a good italian starter. Excellent wine, always extremely expensive in this country. The ingredients are accurately chosen and the cooking it's duly executed. The tiramisu was not my dreams' one but the flan was excellent. The service is fast and gentle and the furniture is really Italian style, not the usual fake and showy design. The bill would be midrange but the wine raised it very up. I really advise this restaurant for somebody which is willing to get in touch with our food culture or such Italians who look for familiar tastes!

Stopped by here during the the gastronomic festival. So the place was overflowing with people.
Short wait, but the hostess let me go to the bar for a couple of margaritas while we waited.
waiter was fantastic & the chef (Ciro) made a couple of stops to chat with customers. The food was great, they let me customize a dish (change it completely). We will definitely be back

Really nice place to have a fine dining experience. The staff is really nice and if it's your birthday, one of the waiters will belt-out an awesome version of the song.
The food is really good and everything tastes delicious. Completely worthwhile!

A group of 6 of us had a lovely dinner with wine. The daily special was sea bass and 3 selected this. All were very pleased. I had lasagna and couldn't finish it all. Very nice evening.

Full of locals. The service of staff and chefs (Ciro & Tony) is warm and honest. Very tasty pasta and definitely not too expensive.
