We just had regular day menu (pastas with gorgonzola). It's a rather simple meal but indeed it's the kind of plate in which you can see the skill of quality. - Al dente tasty pastas with perfect gorgonzola and cream sauce. - Fast and friendly service. - Nice space and atmosphere. - Excellent quality/price ratio. Seeing other meals served to... More

This one seems to have gotten its act together over the course of the past few years, setting its sights on the kind of restaurant many other local rivals could only ever hope to become: concise menu, each dish executed perfectly at a reasonable price, quiet, unfussy ambiance and helpful, friendly service. We've gone back to this one several times... More

The food is excellent, service is great. I've eaten here a few times, last time I had the special: scallops with fettucine in lemon cream sauce - delicious! The only problem is the decoration - not very warm. In fact, upon arriving on a Thursday night with the restaurant full, I was sure it was closed from the outside.

Have been in this resto a few times now and I really like it! Your standard Italian has pizza, pasta and meat... This one only does pasta!! The pasta dishes they serve are super!! Fresh and with seasonal influences.. Like pasta with black truffle. They also offer a nice wine card with some really good wines at great prices. The... More

What I ha liked was not a too large menu and everything we had was fresh and delicious. Polpetti in umido as appetizer, linguine vongole and bottariga as main course and for dessert we had babà rhum with home made ice cream. We had a super Tudcany wine Le Macchiole

Visited this restaurant last week with some friends and ordered the pasta with sun dried tomatoes and artichockes as primo piatto: pasta was not yet al dente and the tomatoes and artichockes of few flavour. As a main i took white fish with olive tapenade on top, spinach and black rice on the side. Spinach was way too salty, black... More

This is by far the worst dining experience that I have ever had! We were treated terribly, charged a completely incorrect amount and the food was deplorable. I am shocked and upset by how awful it was. They didn't even serve cappucinos and they claim to be an Italian restaurant? Ridiculous. Just horrific.
