We had dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere of the restaurant.
The restaurant is located at the lobby level of the Intercontinental Bucharest.

We arrived at 21:00, while the place was almost empty.
We were seated next to a window that overlooked some sex shops on the other side of the street. Ouch!
Still, the atmosphere at the restaurant with the live piano music was lovely.

We each had a 3- course dinner (see the attached photos):

House breads, butter, salt and tapenade – 46 Lei – standard, yet lovely breads.
House wine - a very young (yet good) Chianti - 140 Lei.

Starters:
Melanzana alla Parmigiana - 50 Lei - a huge vegetarian starter, which tasted very reach and nice.
Grilled calamari steak -70 Lei - the dish was totally tasteless and disappointing.

Mains:
Spinach fettuccine - 55 Lei - arrived warm, instead of hot and needed a lot of salt&pepper in order for it to have any taste at all. Disappointing.
Beef tenderloin, Argentina - 155 Lei - this 250 gram steak was excellent. It arrived with a small salad, some sauce and French fries.

Desserts:
2 Tiramisu - 36 Lei, each. They were excellent, with whipped cream and mascarpone cheese.

The service was adequate – polite and friendly.
There is no dress code for the restaurant, but I assume anything below smart casual would cause other patrons to raise a brow.

Bottom line - this was a rather expensive dinner by Western standards - 588 Lei (180 US$) plus a 20 US$ tip, but it also was a VERY expensive dinner by Romanian standards, as eating out in good restaurants in Bucharest is VERY cheap.
Still, if you are staying at the Intercontinental and it's stormy outside - you can try the place. Just be prepared to pay very high prices for average-to-good Italian food.

Ate there twice on a recent trip to Bucharest. Both times the wine the maitre'd selected for us was excellent and reasonable, and all three of us very much enjoyed our food. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
