A place where all the waiters are Italian, and the kitchen staff (as I think) also is. Food is simple, and very nice. No tricks. Speck is speck. Tomato is tomato. Pasta is pasta.

Very nice food indeed. Generous portions. Good choice of real Italian dishes. Get there early as the place gets crowded. Reasonably priced despite being in the EU quarter. Worth a visit!

We decided to try this place even though it had many poor reviews. We found the service was good, the food was good and relatively inexpensive. I would go back.
