Had a dinner with my wife, daughter and sister and we had an excellent meal ! Our waiter was very helpful and attentive! The ambiance was excellent and the food is the closet to eating In Italy that I have found in Oslo. We had the Spaghetti with seafood, Gnocchi, Lam and tortellini and all of them were top notch!...

Got a table even though we had not reserved in advance. We both had lasagna. It was accompanied by bread,but we really missed a salat. Service was good but the staff was actually a bit to polite, belive it or not.
