Authentic Italian food from appetizers to desserts, in a nice environment. I’d recommend to try real taste of ossobuco with risotto alla milanese, or spezzatino. Just be prepared to spend not less than 40 Euro per person, wine included.

Very cosy place with excellent food, where the waiters, unusually, let you eat in your own pace and finish your wine in peace, allowing your stomach to settle and make room for the extrordinary sorbet icecream they serve. Not the cheapest place we've been to,...More

We took a table for 9 and had various dishes that were not to bad but that's the best to say about it. The significant ray of light was the risotto that accompanied the osoboco. Also the whine was nice which kept the atmosphere good.
