I have been to Italy a couple of times and I grew up in an Italian neighbourhood with excellent food in Toronto. My husband took me to this restaurant as a special treat for my birthday. The ambiance and decor were both very nice and we thought it would be a good place to host our colleagues from overseas. However, we were both very disappointed by the food. The most disappointing dish was the lasagne which was obviously old and reheated as evidenced by the mushy texture and uneven temperature. For someone who loves Italian food, this is hardly the place to go.

Was recommended this restaurant by some friends... Although i was not sure what to expect i was pleasantly surprised with the food and selection of meats and cheeses...

Ask for the Italian reserve beer.... Made the night...

The Italian meat and cheeses are great here and won't be found elsewhere in Abuja. The desserts are also a good treat. As you'd expect this all comes with a pretty big price tag. The meals are a major disappointment so best to just have antipasti with some bread and wine.

Walk in and feel like you in Italy. Great for an intimate evening out. Don't expect a wide choice but good for 2 - 3 visits. by which point you'll either love it or what to remember it fondly
