...with authentic Italian staff (and all the attitude that comes with it). Food is really good value for money, all freshly prepared by knowledgeable chefs.

We made a reservation by phone and when we arrived they were already full and told us they don't do reservations. I asked them why they confirmed and then they thought they were funny telling me it must have been the chef who said that. I asked where he was: 'he already left'. We waited and walked over there for... More

Here two times in 1 week. Small but cute place with white cave walls. Fantastic pizza and pasta in particular with prosciutto and ruccola. Great service and wine. Well priced. Highly recommend.

Every now and then you walk into a place and receive a surprise you were not expecting that brightens up your whole trip. The inside, decorated like the inside of the whale that swallowed Pinocchio is like a small cave in the city. The tables are small, the place is bit dark and its noisy, but everything that comes out... More

A cost little place with... More

I have been there several times and I just love the nice and funny staff there. Lasagne is really good but the pizza is the special thing about this place, as you can pour the delicious garlic oil on top of it. The whole place smells so great thanks to the homemade garlic sauce :)

It has the best pizza that i've ever had. Thin crust and the best quality ingredients!! It is delicious!! The only thing is that a bottle of mineral water was 6€!! Apart from that the price-quality rate is great.

I've been coming here for 36 years and my parents a few years before that. The incredible food as not changed since i can remember my first craving for Pinocchio and I credit this place with making me the foodie I am.

The pizza crusts are great and there are some interesting toppings. I particularly like the mettwurst topping. The pasta is acceptable but I found the sauces a bit uninteresting. I had spaghetti alla matriciana - this sauce would traditionally go with buccattini rather than spaghetti and the sliced bacon that replaced panchetta in the sauce was overcooked.
