A medium sized place located on the first floor of an apartment building in a residential neighborhood. It would seem to be populated with lots of regular guests. The friendly and helpful waiter helped us make selections from the huge menu and did tell us we had ordered too much and helped adjust to what he thought we’d want. Even though the large menu had 2 pages for pizza options I saw no one order it. The fried appetizers seemed to come to most tables. Timing was a bit slow and often both plates were not brought at the same time. The interior is fairly plain but is helped with variously colored water glasses at every table. It’s a nice place but the food is a bit bland. We tried for a panna cotta with caramel for dessert but they only had fruit or nutella so we passed on dessert.
The polpette were made of shredded beef and were very nice but could have used a little zing.
The eggplant had a little spice and the coating was quite good. These are a winner.
The carbonara was a very tasty version. It was creamy and the bacon added a good amount of flavor. This was made with dried pasta but had a wonderful essence of butter, parmesan and eggs.
The grisi was made with fresh pasta which was perfectly cooked. It was loaded really tasty pork pieces.
The lamb was huge looking on the plate but the chops were lots of bone and cartilage. It would have benefitted immensely from more than one small wedge of lemon and a salt shaker. It needed something.
The beef rolls were stuffed with sweet carrot and celery and covered with a very tasty sauce, however the meat goes to dry as soon as you chew it.
Chicory was nicely flavored with a hint of garlic.
The fried potatoes are a single fry and thus not a lot of crunch, but a good potato flavor.
