“Over-priced argumentative staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

Like many, we were excited about an Italian style cafe opening in Dushanbe. The coffee is good, but service is not. Having taken the step to separate smokers from non-smokers, non-smokers have very little space and smoke dissipates into the non-smoking area. These guys really need to sort out their supply chain - most products are brought into the country and yet still food poisoning is an issue

“Good coffee. Good meeting place as its easy to find.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

The food is ok. The coffee is good for Dushanbe. Sitting outside in the summer is great. Can get smokey inside especially in the winter. Good cocktails and european wines - which is unusual for Tajikistan! Decent toilet! On the main street of Rudaki - so easy to find when you are new to the city.

“Better than average Espresso and decent Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2011

If you need a decent Espresso, cappucino or Americano (= long black in Australia), this is probably the place in Dushanbe. The cafe has an outdoor area where you can watch the locals go by while the interior is pleasantly European with comfortable seating and is not congested.

The food is good without being exceptional, generally Italian with a local influence. It is certainly more expensive than local Tajik restaurants but the food is reasonably priced for expatriates or the more affluent Tajiks who seem to make up a reasonable proportion of the clientele. Probably a place to see and be seen!

The service is slow but the waiters (male only!!) are pleasant and have at least some English.
