Walked in at this Italian restaurant, the service was great. Please note, the portions are large. Glad we shared as an appetizer, the Caesar Salad as it was a meal. The pasta bolognese was fine. Great location across the street from the Radisson Blu and minutes from The Palace.

Menu as described, service good, ambiance, good and food was excellent. OK, its local prices but it was a very nice steak and having... More

Good pasta, but not extraordinary in any way. Disappointing prawns, quite small and dry. Good soave wine... Fair price and disponent if You stay at Scandic Hotel Holberg.

The staff were friendly and helpful, the ambience was pleasant, with really nice, quiet background music. The food isn't the most authentic Italian, but was a good meal with a not too expensive glass of good Italian wine. I was a bit surprised that bread didn't come automatically, but perhaps that isn't the habit in Norway. Good cappuccino to end... More

Very good Italian food and excellent wines. The three-course prix fixe selections are an excellent choice. The atmosphere is quiet and excellent for business discussions (or a date!) My colleagues and I shared a bottle of wine and enjoyed our entire evening.

The pizza was just ok. Mine was very doughy. The chocolate brownie was superb. The wait staff wasn't very attentive. But it was very close to the Radisson Blu which made it a convenient pick for my single night in Oslo.

Conveniently located across the street from the Radisson Blu, it was a cosy place for dinner on a cold night.

Just enjoyed dinner this week. I liked the trendy and cozy interior a lot. Staff was friendly and attentive. Restaurant is located just across the street from the Radisson Hotel near the Palace. Ordered Linguini with Gamberettini - while in some places you have to virtually search for the shrimps - not so in this place. The pasta dish was... More
