We haven't had the chance to try the food in here unfortunately but we had a great time for evening drinks. The cocktails are excellent, thoughtfully put together all invented by the bartender.

Thanks for your review, but there are many mistakes. We wrote "kitchen closed" on Facebook, Instagram, on the blackboard outside the restaurant, and even on the answering machine (but maybe you do not understand Italian). The kitchen was closed because it had a private event...More

We recently had dinner here after walking by and noticing the great decor. The food is modern and inventive. All dishes were described to us in detail, and the service could not have been better. Everything was delicious! One of our favorite meals in Italy.

Staff: relaxed, mostly fluent in English; Food: very good, try the Carbonera (not carbonara!). Few hundred meters away from busy city centre, but still pedestrian area in the evening. Price/performance: excellent.
