“A great place!!! A must try!!!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 via mobile

Having passed by this restaurant a couple of times, my best friend & I
decided to try it one evening for dinner. We had not read any reviews
& had not gone there with any preconceived notions, with regards to
the primary aspects that define a restaurant; the food & beverages,
service & ambiance. Once we entered we were transported to a different
place, a place that only one can find in those small towns in Europe.

The ambiance is clean; when I say clean I mean minimal fancy
decorations, just a few well selected pictures on the walls, the music
is soft & soothing to the ears, acoustically the restaurant no matter
how full does not get noisy & one can enjoy a conversation & a meal in

To say the service is excellent; is an understatement! The waiter was
very prompt & extremely helpful, catering to all our various
verifications required in my Grilled Chicken & my friends Fish. He
followed the service sequence to the tooth & did not any any moment
falter or fumble in any of his actions nor did he raise an eyebrow in
doubt for any questions we had.

The food, ahh the food is the piece de resistance of the place! First
the warm bread they bought out, freshly baked & tender, just slather
some butter on it & you are one happy camper! The chicken starter we
had was succulent & perfectly cooked, & out customized main courses
were simply delicious! We are not dessert people but the desserts on
the opposite table were tempting!

To sum it up, its a great place, quaint & inconspicuous but they let
their food & service do the talking for them!!!

“Modest, but best Italian food”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Me and my husband have been visiting this place for almost 7 years now.
The menu is limited and not changed a bit in the last 7 years (except for the prices ofcourse !)
neither have the tastes of the dishes altered.
the staff is very courteous and more than willing to change the ingredients or customize a dish to your liking.
Our favourite here is the tomato potato soup (half n half); butter garlic prawns, mousaka, vietnamese basa, agnalotti in pesto cream...
the amount of herbs and oil in the dishes are perfect..unlike many other italian restaurants in town.
the wine menu is also great and the waiters have decent knowledge about which wine would go well with which dish.
these days it costs about 2500 for two people including wine.

“Small place, but good food.”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Small place with good food. The pumpkin and fenugreek soup was very good. The cannelloni we had for our main course was very well prepared. The service can be improved. With alcohol. A cost of 1100 per person is less expensive.
