The tagliatelle parmegiano with truffel really was ourstanding. I will come back for that! The service was nice, but they made mistakes with table numbers several times, that looked sloppy.

Voorgerechten waren prima. Burrata was heel goed. Lekkere wijn. Het scampihoofdgerecht viel echter tegen en was erg prijzig: €22 voor 5 scampi’s met een beetje soppende sla in waterige wijnsaus.
Op maandag zat het restaurant helemaal vol! Wat me erg stoorde was het geluid. Je kon elkaar bijna niet verstaan aan een vierpersoonstafel. Erg jammer.

We booked a table for 6 to celebrate the birthday of our twin daughters. Unfortunately there was a celebration at the table next to us with ca. 12 people who were also celebrating a birthday. We were not able to have a conversation with our family because the table next to us was so loud. When you book such a large group it is better to leave some space between tables, so the next table also can enjoy the evening.
We went home early.

Loved the food and ambiance
Only thing that bothered me was the young girl at the entrance
She just sat there, like she was hating her job and didn’t even try to be kind

I think you should give your guests the feeling that they are welcome

Beside that, just amazing!

Staff are really friendly and professional. It's a nice and cosy restaurant with a good vibe. Great to have dinner with friends. What I didn't like that we had to leave the table after a few hours but they did offer to sit at the bar include little table, so that's was really nice. I'm sure I would return. Food is great, best pasta ever.

Amazing! Went there for a birthday, they played happy birthday as we sat down and th food was heavenly. We had a great night and the food isn’t that expensive while the quality is superb. Nice, cozy and romantic restaurant. I would recommend the linguini in the big cheese to everyone, it is a show and amazing food in one.

The food was very tasty. The service was poor in the beginning. I guess they were short on staff and pulled someone from the kitchen. Later on we got a better waiter.

Food was, like always, amazing. Service was even better. It is a bit dark inside which makes rhe restaurant a bit winter-ish. But with the doors open it is okay.

+ Great location / great atmosphere in the restaurant
+ Very nice bar with great looking cocktails / nice decoration of the restaurant
+ Round booth tables were very nice to sit in with friends
+ Quality of the food was great
- The waiters seem to be in a hurry, food comes out very quickly
- The special pasta made in a big cheese wheel is great, but again the preparation of the food by the waiter went very quickly, not much effort or show, no nice talk or anything. The waiters all seem to be having a bad day.
- We ordered a bottle of wine by name, but after check-out we noticed that there were 2 bottles of wines on the menu with the same name. Without asking which bottle we wanted, they just served us the most expensive bottle and charged us full price.

The ambiance was great and the staff was almost fully Italian what made the experience better but the food wasn't outstanding in my opinion. It was nice but we ate for 40 per person (with a bottle of wine included), but didn't feel blown back by it.

Maybe a little over rated.
The pasta from the big Parmazan cheese is more like oil/butter then cheese. Pasta is very taste full but there is a big lack of cheese flavour.
The meat dishes are moderate. Noting wrong, nothing special.
The building en ambiance are very nice though!

Dear Sir,

I myself was really disappointed
I ordered spaghetti vongole and the taste was not perfect
I also missed the fresh grated cheese on my dish.
In my dessert, the Tira miso was absolutely no alcohol ?
But the people who were with me. They enjoyed the spaghetti parmezan and they were enthousiastic
I think that unfortunately I will not recommend my friends to go to your restaurant.
