They are kind, professional and the food is great! I had pasta, my colleague had pizza and another hamburger, they was all amazing. The restaurant is an open space, elegant but modern. Perfect for business. I will use that restaurant gain for sure! Approved!

After a long day out walking this place really hit the spot! The service was great right from the start. The food was good, especially if you consider the cheap price and generous servings. The atosphere is cozy, but quite loud.

This is a nice restaurant with friendly staff and good food. It does, in my opinion, lack some atmosphere as it's a little stark inside; it doesn't "feel" Italian. Otherwise as a traveller here on a quick overnight it made for a good solo dinner.

My partner and I eat here very often, usually after going to the adjacent cinema. Service is always fast, efficient, helpful and friendly, especially from Bela, the Hungarian waiter. The burgers are amazing. The zombie cocktails fantastic. Herzlichen Dank!
