It's a kind of strange to see oriental staff serving Italian, but...the service was quite good. Artichoke risotto was quite appetising. But, despite this I believe this place worths a visit more for the environment - it's a beautiful orto with stunning flowers.

Very strange but pleasant restaurant. There is a florist inside so the atmosphere is relaxing, there is the perfume of the food and of the flowers. The prices are adequate. Just a note: the menu is always the same.. Try to change something!

Nice situated restaurant in a garden (orto). Menu in different languages. Good food. I had the roast beef for main course which was very good but just had a little too much olive oil on it to my liking.

High quality ingredients, expert service, very comfortable setting in a former greenhouse/flower shop type of setting. Not formal, but manages to be fun and elegant. Excellent champagne to accompany taglierini alla bottarga is my absolute favourite reccomendation
