Great ambience, complete with garden and beach. Even better pizza. Amazing thin-crust pizzas. I did have only Veg one, but friends liked Non-veg ones too. And they have lots of options. Great during winter months, other seasons open air sitting maybe uncomfortable even during nights....More

Even Italians will drool over the food here, I am sure. A very cosy place away from the humdrum of the city but on the beach, I can take a bet that they don't have a single non repeat customer. The service is equally good...More

This was my 5th visit since they opened about 12 years ago. That's not a bad hit rate considering I visit Chennai only once a year! They are located 100 m off the beach, outdoor seating in Gazebos with fans, concrete tables & seats (with...More

Well-prepared food, nice atmosphere, If you come by auto-rickshaw, you need to keep the driver there, as it not possible to get one going back to town. Bring mosquito repellent.

Food nearly tastes Italian. The only problem here is the ambiance. The place as such is big with a lawn with seating, but with lawn comes mosquitoes and heat waves from the nearby beach which makes it very uncomfortable. They also have an air-conditioned restaurant...More
