Went in after some Christmas shopping. Had glass of fresh orange, tea, and Scalini spaghetti. Service was welcoming, restaurant very comfortable, and food nice. Not a huge portion but all I wanted, at a good reasonable price for a top end restaurant.

The best Italian restaurant in Baku. Simply the best. Elio, the manager is the nicest person I've met in my life. Extremely polite, friendly, caring and easygoing person. Food? What one can say? It is just perfect. Tastes differ of course, but it is worth to try.

I never make it at home because my husband doesn't like it so I have tried it all along the Grand Strand. I did have another favorite but it can not compare. My... More

Good italian good and fast service. Try the mushroom risotto, grilled chicken with herbs and spinach ravioli. The portions in my opinion were huge and good enough to share.

Restaurant is not too large and has nice atmosphere, the menu changes frequently and is quite diverse. On my recent visit we had very good rabbit, decent sea-bass and very well prepared steak. All accompanied by local red wine, which I strongly recommend. The service was very good, but I can imagine that they may gave problems when all tables... More

It's always funny when you visit a restaurant of strong European culture in an emerging (to Europe) culture and location. Great food, good wines, friendly service.. considering.
