OK, as you ill have read from the other reviews, the owner manages to charm plenty of customers but really his bogus bonhomie is a cover for the shortcomings of the kitchen. We were seduced by the quaint appearance of the restaurant from the exterior...More

Been there many times since August 2015 and it never failed to disappoint. Pasta from 12€-17€, lots of choice, very good desserts and pizza. Service is usually quite fast and staff is very nice. Everything is homemade including the bread.

A very intimate, traditional italian meal. Served by Nino himself - what an utter charmer and delight. We loved every morsel of it. Octopus salad was yummy. Tomato prosciutto spinach salad with gorgonzola dressing to die for. Love this place. A MUST DO

I'm a regular and the boss is great but a young guy has recently joined and replaces him some nights, with little tact.
