Had a pasta dish with a glass of wine. Service very nice. Food was good. Music absolutely horrible. €30 too much.

The food and service were top-notch. The chef has an extensive knowledge of Italian cuisine and the overall staff is friendly. The quality definitely matches the price. Highly recommended.

Excellent staff, fantastic food, great wine selection, spotless, the chef cooks in front of you, the best price/quality in the area. Small menu regularly renewed. Free wifi. You can charge you phone on your seat. Discrete background music. What else can I say?
