Tips

  • Best Italian in the city hands-down. Wish someone would take us on a date here!
  • Duck is exquisite and generous
  • I flock to this cozy Italian basement on the reg for their unbelievable short rib gnocchi! Melting chocolate cake for dessert of course.
  • The cavatelle was absolutely amazing. Perfect flavor. For an appetizer, it was a fairly large portion so take that in mind when ordering your meal. Get this!!
  • Sweet potato ravioli was amazing! Great selection of both Italian and American wines too. Very cozy atmosphere. Definitely recommend it for a romantic night out!
  • Managed to accommodate despite no reservations! Tasty pan-fried mozzarella and butternut ravioli. Vegetarian too!
  • Amazing gnocchi with short ribs. The meat melts in your mouth, not in your hand!
  • You must get the garlic soup! It is to die for.
  • Save room for dessert. The chocolate cake and banana bread pudding are amazing.
  • Went in a group of 4, everything we ordered was great. You can't go wrong.
  • I wont lie, the best fondue I have ever had is here. Cheese fondue with steak tips and portobello mushrooms. Fantastic. Get it with the house Chianti. Enjoy!
  • Chicken Parm! Best Ive ever had, possibly one of the best dishes full stop Ive had. Perfectly cooked quality chicken, nice sauce, fresh pasta and a heap of cheese!
  • The gnocchi, the Bolognese, the chocolate cake and the fondutta... basically everything Ive tried!
  • Fil mignon ao molho de vinho com risotto e aspargos. Simplesmente sensacional.
  • Delish! Repeat customer. Tiny, hot, and crowded, but the food is worth it! Had a dish with pasta and seafood, can't remember what it's called. So good!
  • The lobster pasta was delicious
  • The lobster pasta was delicious. Polite and friendly staff.
  • The cavatelle was fabulous, but beware it's a meal in its own! The duck was cooked perfectly and melting chocolate cake was amazing. Would absolutely recommend. Go on a 100% empty stomach though!
  • Great date spot. Enjoyed the duck combo (duck breast and leg). Nice combo of duck textures and taste. Finish with the molten chocolate cake
  • And OfCourse the risotto. The flavour is incredible
