Very pleasant restaurant tucked away off the street so quiet. Menu is Italian and I would recommend the spinach and Gorgonzola risotto which was delicious. Portions very generous. Outside dining also possible.

Very nice location, from the design you can feel to be in Italy. Good food, good service and ordinary selection of Italian wine. I tried pasta with pesto rucola and salmons it was not really exceptional. Nevertheless I'll visit again.
