This restaurant used to be ok. Now it's dull and bland - both ambiance and food. So many better Italian restaurant in the city. Just font waste an evening here. Hopefully it will close soon (no customers - wonder why) and something better will open up.

I went there only a few weeks after the menu has became vegeterian. I can't say food was not good because I found my slices of tomato very good. The only problem is the price for what you have... It is highly expensive for very little vegetarian plates. The staff is very friendly, the restaurant is nice and the food... More

This is to be an excellent Italian Restaurant in District 1 of Hanoi but now it is pathetic. I have nothing against vegetarians but chicken, beef and pork based dishes have disappeared from the menu. A pizza or pasta does not have to be meat based but a pizza with potato and tomato: now come on? The only positive thing... More

At the beginning of my lunch at the restaurant I was kindly informed in English that there is new menu - no meat no fish. It was ok for me. We ordered and waited a little while. Caneloni which I took was really tasty. The only problem was the price - I paid 10 usd for that, which is in... More

Called in for lunch and we weren't disappointed. Started with fresh bread, olive oil and balsamic both of the best quality. Bruschetta followed, very tasty. Mains were Cannelloni and one of us had Ravioli. All very happy with our choices. Ice cream rounded out the set menu. Beers, wine and soft drink an affordable extra. Lovely character filled building. Immaculate... More
