We didn't see a name so didn't check ratings but it is a horrible restaurant. Very slow. Expensive. The food tastes bad. Wish I stormed out without paying.

The place seemed to be a nice trattoria from the outside. The food was great but as I only ordered a single lasagne, the staff was apparently a sort of rude by constantly trying to conveince me to have more dishes ordered.

Nice place, with typical Italian trattoria atmosphere. Food just average and too expensive. I'm afraid that we will not come back

Sardines? Six whitebait! 4 euros for a manky salad; cover charge for not very nice bread. All very expensive and poor quality
