Very poor and slow service. They have English menu prepared, which is not simple translation of italian menu. This is the lesson how to name something to justify special prices for foreigners. They call it "creative menu" which in some way it is. They are...More

Delicious Primo and Secondo, but tasteless Dolce (chese cake). Friendly staff, but the service and attention was not at the top. Good location close to the city center. Not easy to remember the meny, which was presented verbally, when placing an order.

They don't have an English Menu for starters. The Staff also don't speak English which makes things very difficult indeed. I sat down and was given a small starter on the house (so I thought) with done bread-sticks I then asked if they had scallops...More
