We enjoyed an incredible lunch at this restaurant. The service was really good and they were very attentive to our needs. Really recommend the fettuccini boscaiola for anyone that goes there, and don't forget the tiramisu for dessert!

Very good pasta. The bread they serve is awsome. Be careful, it is usually quite crowded after theaters are over

It is a kind of "fast food trattoria". With "fashion"music to speed up your time in the tables. I had to wait more than 6 minutes to a waiter finally arrive to the table and not before I asked a man "in charge" for so. The food, ravioli, were undercooked and look, feel and taste as an ordinary ravioli bought... More

We enjoyed our meal here as it was close to our hotel. Probably wouldn't recommend going too far out of your way to come here but if you are in the neighborhood it is a good option

I went there with my parents for a quick cheap lunch guided by reviews online and got really disappointed. The lunch menu had no variety and it was not good. Service was also very disappointing, took too long for everything. Would not recommend.

Came in early but no poblemo. Ordered a fish I had never heard of and it was delicious. Wait staff was very helpful, especially when the credit card "was refused" and I asked them to try again when it went through ... problem was thesecurity.

Really poor quality food.staff only interested in watching football on the TV. The main course of a 3 course meal was inedible. The aubergine tasted of fried oil with ham on top and a poor white sauce.
