Description: Issa, è innanzitutto un amico che vi accoglie, con la moglie Luciana, nel loro caldo, esotico ristorantino. L'atmosfera che potrete condividere con gli altri ospiti, vi porterà certo a tramutare una occasionale visita, fatta per soddisfare una curiosità per dei cibi esotici ed una cucina etnica diversa, in una piacevole e ricorrente abitudine; non solo per assaporare nuovamente gli splendidi aromi sapientemente miscelati ma sopratutto per godere del calore umano e della passione che Issa saprà comunicarvi. Ed è passione vera, sincera ed incondizionata per la sua bella terra, la Giordania, per le millenarie tradizioni, per i profumi e colori, la storia l'arte. Tutta questa passione la ritroverete nella cucina di Issa, sperimentatore intelligente che riesce con grande capacità a mettere la sua penellata d'artista, personalizzando pur senza stravolgerle le ricette della più consolidata cucina medioorientale. Ma la passione non si esaurisce nel preparare pietanze, la vera passione di

The food was exquisitely aromatic with a wonderful variety of dishes each masterfully prepared. There is no menu necessary because the chef will surprise and delight you with his choices. A lovely evening enriched by the hospitality of the staff. We will be back again. Lovely flavored when you are looking for something outside of the ordinary Italian choices

I found Issa's restaurant on trip advisor, looking for a nice date for my girlfriend back in April. Visiting from US, I didn't know that many restraunts and whether they understanding English. Made the reservation over the phone and Issa's was very accommodating with a wonderful English. We showed up half an hour later than scheduled and he had our table ready and welcomed us personally. He sat us at our table, and then feast started. Dish after dish, wine and wine and finally a spectacular desert. They would just keep your palate hypnotized while you make a journey to heaven and come back. He is a wonderful chef and provides the most welcoming environment for his guests. We certainly had one memorable night and promised him whenever I go back will visit him again. He also took a picture with us at the end of the night :)

What a wonderful restaurant tucked away - Went with a friend and had such a great time and a wonderful experience. The food was very good - not as spicy as some, but still amazing. Such a nice change from the norm. The owner went above and beyond. If you have a few people - they have a room in the back where up to 12 can sit on the floor and really take in the atmosphere - We will be repeat customers

Where do I begin? I have never had Arabic food, ever... but MAN was this food amazing! I can't say I have ever been to a restaurant that has had such wonderful hospitality and amazing food!! Make sure you make a reservation so he can prepare you a wonderful dish! I loved that we felt at home while we ate at this restaurant! The staff was very warm and welcoming! I would pay 35 euro all over again just to enjoy the amazing food. We received about 6 little bowls of appetizers, a main course and a dessert! Not one item of food disappointed us! We would recommend this place to anyone and everyone, over and over again. Enjoy!!
