Quick and friendly service. Quite tasty, but you could definitely get a more authentic meal elsewhere. As a solo diner, however, I enjoyed the chance to grab something to take away/low maintenance.

Our pasta is hand-made freshly every day by our "sfogline" pasta-makers who respect Bolognese traditions, so we are really happy that you tasted this in our dishes! We are also pleased that you appreciated the service from our staff. Hope you see you again soon...More

we are very proud of our "sfogline" which make fresh pasta all the day for our guest. Tortellini are our best, but try also our tortelloni stuffed with a wonderful ricotta and our tagliatelle, they are perfect for a very nice lunch. See you soon....More
