I go here quite often since my office is around the corner. Their set lunch specials are always good and it's a good price/value ratio. The Pizzas are all good and the seafood risotto is one of my favorites. The newly introduced gourmet lunch menu did not make it for me, I think I rather stay with the regular menu.... More

A great and friendly ambiance, authentic italian food served with passion and smiles. Wood oven pizza, with fresh ingredients, and perfectly cooked meals in typical italian style. Accurate and careful management, good selection of music at a discrete volume. Times of serving are perfect for friendly meetings or business lunches.

Make no mistake, this is an up-market restaurant with prices to match. Main courses ranged from 160,000 to 500,000VND. Despite this, our meals where very average - the sort of food you'd find in a cheap resteraunt anywhere else for a third of the price. The ambience was OK - it wasn't unusual to see men in suits, whilst I... More

Blink and you could miss this restaurant. Luckily we found it! The food was excellent, after 10 days of eating Vietnam eye food an Italian meal was much appreciated. Average service though.

Without meaning any criticism to the previous set up, as a regular I am acknowledging on a daily basis dramatic improvements. The splendor of Italian cuisine is made of tiny details that only a strong passion can fulfill, in spite of all difficulties to find the right ingredients in this remote part of the world. Very well done, Ra and... More

I own 4 restaurants in Santa Barbara and this place is excellent. Great choices of wine from all over world. I took a group of 13 for a "family style" meal and the management was very accommodating. Medium price for Saigon and central location to riverside hotels.
