The food was very good, however other aspects of the experience let this place down badly. Our waiter was unfriendly (very unusual for Brazzaville) There is no ambience at all.... inside very sterile...and outside a tiny terrace in a very claustrophobic/cramped garden with the burrrrr of the generator for music.

Filo Tempo fights with Mami Watta to be Brazza's No.1 eatery and we the diners are the beneficiaries of such competition. Filo is Italian and the pasta is just great (and not a pizza on the menu!). It has inside and outside seating and for such a popular place the manager does not cram in the tables, much to his... More

A good italian eatery in Brazzaville. The food is good and the fare is entirely italian. You will enjoy eating in a home that has been modified to a restaurant. Service can be slow as is in the entire country.

Good quality but service was not good and the restaurant was expensive and did not particularly impress. The ambiance was nothing to write home about.

Filo Tempo is an excellent Italian restaurant but difficult to find in a side road of Av.Nelson Mandela. The terrace especially is a pleasant place with the lovely arranged plants. The antipasti and the fish I ordered where delicious so the letter could have some more deco for my eyes.Service was friendly. Probably most products are imported from Italy.
