“My favourite restaurant in Tirana”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

For me, this is what eating out is about. Relaxed atmosphere, cosy surroundings and lovely food and wine.
Roberto and his staff are excellent hosts and clearly take pride in their food and wine.
I am often in Tirana on business and this is where I always make a beeline for.
I like it so much that I took the entire team out for a meal there and Roberto kindly let us take over the whole restaurant. The staff and kitchen coped marvellously well. Everybody enjoyed the evening greatly and I heard that some of them have gone back there, they loved it so much.

“Tiny secret”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This is a tiny place, off the beaten track but not hard to find, run by people who obviously love what they do. Classic Italian food, simply presented, fast service and well priced. I had Trofi with mushrooms and radicchio, which was nice. It needs to act on the atmosphere bit. Such a small restaurant craves for "cozy".

“Excellnt restaurant”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

I went this summer for dinner when I was in vacation to Albania. Is a great restaurant, great personnel, and great food. I love this restaurant. I would love if they post some of their recipes in Facebook. I give this restaurant a 10.
