The most miserable service from you enter until you go. Only focus on magnumchampange guests as they forget you in the moment that you pay... The rumor spreads as worst in Oslo

Excellent food and service. Good wine list. We had 'spaghetti al mare' and 'gnochi al gamberi'. Superb! The wine, Amarone, perfectly served. Tiramissu for desert and an expresso. Just perfect!

No parking that we saw, but it's located on a corner close to the main commons area in the city center, just a few blocks away from the National Theater, where I believe there's a subway stop.
