I have eaten here many times in the past five years while coming to Bucharest. This is the high-end location of a chain of well-known restaurants in the area and is more for a special evening for a romantic night on the town. Tried to get a table on the patio overlooking the lake during the summer. On the weekend... More

Actually i took a long walk through the city and could not find a decent Italian restaurant until I found this modern and good looking restaurant. I took bruschetta as a starter and a pizza as main menu, and tiramisu to finish the meal. Its all releatively cheap and very nice. They have different bruschetta's and i loved them. The... More

The food in this place is lovely. Not a 5 start ristorante but is a great tratoria. Steak with gorgonzola is the best.

Very large area with plenty of space and good Night Atmosphere for casual dinning. In front of Atheneum it's a handy place to visit after a concert venue. Food is quite good but far from excellent considering the other Restaurants nearby. Better for beers and casual eatings

We had a nice late lunch here. Very good food, high pricing though. Polite staff but really hard to get their attention. Rather noisy and crowded with fake fancy rich people most of the evenings. The food was tasty but all in all the restaurant is not very welcoming.

Although the people were very pleasant, and the atmosphere of the location and building was cozy, due to the fact that this is a very big restaurant which can support very large groups, you can expect that the food and drinks served have a feeling of 'big kitchen'. Unsure how to describe it differently. If something is missing when served... More

they are missing a "character", rather than that they have good italian food with nice service, there is always a place, so you don't need to plan ahead.

This was recommended to us by our tour driver. He was a nice guy even if the tour was the worst I have ever been on, but then that is another story. Feel free to ask me about it. There were no outside tables available so we ate inside which was actually preferable to us since it was already dark.... More

This place is spot on. Great pizza and light salads. Very close to the park area and plenty of space inside and outside. The inside bit gets pretty smokey, so choose outside if they let you. The service was decent, but nothing special. I'll go again, that is for sure.

Thank tcresidentTc
