    Cosy place. Good service. Had the zuchinni cream and veal filet. I didnt know the zuchinni cream so I tried it but I simply did not like the bitter taste. It was visually very nice. The veal filet was too simple with just four fresh asparges. I expected a bit more in this price level. The bread was awesome by the way.

    Food was excellent, waiter very busy or not enough to serve. Very nice atmosphere in / outside, good wine recommendations. Beer only in big bottles available, to much for one person.

    My partner chose excellent dishes. The first course of scallops was fantastic and the second course of tempura was unexpected for an Italian restaurant; it was creative and delicious.

    We had the vegetarian menu degustation, because we enjoyed the regular one on an earlier visit and liked it very much. But this one was disappointing for us and we expected more for 130. Too many onions to make it short.

    Very good food and service. They even changed my tuna that was not okey. The tuna that came in later was excellent.
