I had heard from a friend that the food was good so the next time I was in Bucharest I made a reservation. After being seated we were finally greeted by a less than enthusiastic waiter—ten minutes after being seated—and the restaurant wasn't even half full at 8:30pm. I was disappointed to learn that my steak gorgonzola wasn't available. We're... More

Now it is a crowdy place. The food is normal, not spectacular but little bit expensive. The dessert was not so fresh but main dish was good - rissoto with seafood

We had a business lunch here for 4 people. It was quiet, so good for business discussions, and the service was excellent. The flat bread is the nicest I've tasted anywhere in the world. Recommended.

This was the first restaurant we went to in Bucharest. They have a great selection of traditional Italian dishes and pizza. I was pleasantly surprised they have a good selection of dinner salads as well. I had their salad with gorgonzola, and it was very good. A great meal for a first night in town. If I go back to...
