I came for the truffles, but did not get any taste of it. The chicken soup with truffle did not taste truffle. The fusilli with truffle cream was without cream, with olive oil and pistachio nuts (!). The few truffle slices on the top where...tastless, as were the ones on the risotto. Except for the missing truffle taste, all dishes and wine were very excellent.More

Amazing! The beef tenderloin (rare) (with polenta) was one of the best we have had in our lives (and we have had many), and the same goes to beef tenderloin carpaccio. The meat is extra soft and tastefull. The fusilli "Sea & Land" are also...very good. The portions are large and prices very moderate.More

Just wow- we went twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Everything was impressive- the food was delicious (the truffle cheesecake was our absolute favourite thing), it was amazing to try truffles like this for the first time (on one visit, I think because he...could see how happy we were to try it, a staff member brought a truffle directly to our table and shaved extra directly onto our meals). The staff are kind, professional and seem happy to work there. The location in Tirana castle is perfect. There wasn't a thing I didn't enjoy- the house white wine was also delicious. The prices are sensational, even for a city that is already good value for eating options for people visiting. All in all this is the real deal, I think you will love it and I urge you to go if you visit Tirana.More

Best restaurant in Tirana! We tried half of the menu and everything was delicious. The Tartuf shop is the #1 place to go when you visit Tirana! The staff is super friendly and helpful. Especially Kevin was the best waiter in the restaurant! We highly...recommend the Pasta with truffles and the potatoes with truffle cream! The restaurant is in the middle of a stylish and beautiful area. The prices are also very affordable.More

Popular spot in Tirana Castle. Tasty truffle dishes with a focus on Italian cuisine. I had the carbonara and it was cooked according to the Italian way (not the English addition of cream). I was extremely happy with this and ate it before my wife...had even finished half of her Risotto! The rea is great and full of energy so it's a good location for a meal. I recommend the house wine and it's fantastic for the price point. 2.5 euros a glass! Coming from england I felt like I was robbing the place. The waiter was clearly swamped with work, but kept his composure and got everything correct on our order. Meal took awhile to arrive but during one of the busiest times of the day, it's expected. I recommend coming here if you're a fan of truffle dishes and love Italian cooking.More

This was pretty disappointing given the high reviews. My ravioli was on the tough side (though the sauce was delicious). My boyfriend’s octopus risotto was well-cooked, but very bland. The server was clearly working very hard, but he was the only one, which meant the...service was the worst I’ve encountered in a very long time. The location, however, was excellent! I might try it again as a solo traveler, but I don’t think I could talk my boyfriend into going back!More

One of the best meals we had in our lives. Went here two times in a row. Would have eaten here much often but unfortunately had to leave after two days. Excellent food for little money (compared to German prices). Perfect for truffle lovers. Highly...recommended.More

The food was amazing and unexpectedly different. We had the tartar and the carbonata and honesty I would pay more if I could (hint hint leave a tip)
