Externally this Lombardia cuisine restaurant looks so inviting, similar to those lovely small eateries in south of France. However once entered, the ambience inside is a disappointment: cold, tired, bland, sterile. I felt like leaving asap. The service was courteous and attentive. The food was quite good. (It would be more balance if the duck breast appetizer could be smaller... More

This place is FANTASTIC!! Ok, it IS a tiny fraction more expensive than the others on the same street, but please, please, PLEASE, do not let that put you off!

Like other reviewers we found this restaurant quite empty, but we don't know why. The popular restaurant up the road is turning people away, and here there are tables to spare. Maybe it's because they don't do pizza. But the food and service are very good, with complimentary prosecco, bruschetta and limoncello (not at the same time) and good food... More

Read lots of reviews about this restaurant and thought we would give this ago as we were staying at a hotel on the same road. We were the only people at the restaraunt around 19.30 but this picked up later when the local Italians came out to eat. However the owner was very hospitable with a glass of prosecco on... More

I’m vegan. I had carrots and potato gnocchi (carrot dumpling crepe is how described, I think, on the menu) with porcini mushrooms, It was out of this world fantastic! While we waited the cook/waiter brought aubergine-eggplant babganoosh and crostini, mixed green salad, prosecco. B had perch ravioli and loved it. I normally like rock music but the music on in...

A cozy place not in center of the city but with good meal. If you want to eat your food in a place out of the crowded city center, choose this one.

We had a nice dinner here. The host (owner?) started off the night with a small glass of prosecco, and ended with limoncello -- both on the house. We had relatively simple pasta dishes that were both good. The service was just right for two tired travelers. He was attentive and kind. That being said, this restaurant allows people to... More

We were the only couple there from 7 pm when it opened until 8 pm when we left. Friendly welcome, free glass of prosecco, free bruschetta and free glass of limoncello. It's a shame that the cost of those (very nice) freebies wasn't utilised towards the food - the meat in the beef risotto was nearly all fat and bone,... More
