“fresh delicious pasta”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

Super friendly owner. Pasta was very fresh and sauces and portions perfect. Veggies were delicious as well. Tiramisu was homemade and very tasty. Went around noon so wasnt crowded yet. Enjoyed that. Would eat there again. One appetizer, two entrees, drinks, and one dessert about 50 euros.

“Delicious home-made food, owner a real character”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

They serve home-made pasta. The apparent owner Claudio said his wife made it which we don't know for sure, but it was home-made and delicious. He stands outside his restaurant as many small business owners do there, and tries to convince people to come in. We took his card and came back several hours later for supper, and he remembered us and that we were Canadian.
Claudio is quite a character and a bit of a salesman but very good about it. He made several recommendations and promised pretty amazing results but the food did live up to his billing, it was delicious.
Our only disappointment was that he disappeared half-way throughout the meal without a word. It's no big deal as he probably has long days or may have had something important to deal with, but he is part of the attraction and we looked forward to his presence. That is the only reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating.

“Avoid at all costs”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

Unfortunately we ate there before seeing the reviews on here - big mistake. The owner who was standing outside was very welcoming an that, combined with the lovely display of various pastas in the window, tempted us in.

The food and service was good but the bill bore no relation to the prices on the menu and arrived as indecipherable squiggles. The first bill presented to us was for ?86 which was reduced to ?69 when we challenged it. This was still way too much for what we had ordered and having read the reviews on here now I know why. A place this dishonest and underhand deserves to go out of business.

“Complete Ripoff”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

The food was okay, but the glasses and the toilets were dirty and it was way too expensive for what was offered. 33€ for two very small portions of pasta and a bottle of water with the notice "Tip not included" on the bill. Never again - do not go there!
