This restaurant served us the worst food of our two-week trip to Italy! We ate a over cooked lasagna without flavour and a pesto pasta that tasted nothing like it should! The service was not very good and it felt unprofessional to have to pay...More

Great food with fantastic service from chef Targi and team. We visited on a Monday so it was reasonably quiet and we shared the salami starter which was more than enough for my wife while I pressed on with a tagliatelle of pork. Fantastic.

The food was great including the carbonara and the tortelli. But the service was weak. The waiter seemed rushed. He delivered each plate with a delay of five minutes so we all had to eat at different times. He failed to deliver our appetizers and...More
