Al Sicomoro Bar and Restaurant

Reviewed By Arben72

Visited this place with colleagues. It is located on the second floor of a residential apartment block. At the very entrance guests are warned that this is a "slow food restaurant' so do expect that your food will be served promptly. The Chef is very good and all the food is prepared upon order.The overall ambience of the restaurant was quite pleasant. The waiters were attentive and helpful. We ordered Italian food and must say that it was very tasteful and even came quite fast as we were braced to wait for longer.Do not miss trying the spaghetti (with any kind of sauce) and lasagnas.More importantly, also ask for tiramisu; I had the best home made tiramisu in years. It is made upon order and is super delicious and fresh.

Blue Bird

Reviewed By hr60

Five of us dined at the Blue Bird for lunch. The food was excellent--tasty, well prepared, and nicely presented (see photo). Because of that positive experience, we returned for dinner, but regretted the decision. That night, the three of us who'd eaten tibs zigny—and no one else—suffered a 24-hour bout of nausea and vomiting. Zigny is a stew which is simmered for hours, and should therefore be safe. That it wasn't indicates poor post-cooking sanitation.
