Wow! What a great place

What a great spot in SGN. Food was great, service was great. Good wine list. Very surprising to find this quality of Italian food in SGN. Table side carbonara was incredible. My new favorite restaurant in Ho Chi Minh.

After seeing very positive reviews on this site, I decided to give it a try, but I was totally disappointed. First of all, ambience is poor and at the seat I was given, I felt crammed in. I ordered spaghetti with tomato sauce and it was below average. I had the same dish in an inexpensive fusion restaurant (Italian, Mexican,... More

We had a lovely dinner. Our pastas delicious. Found the tiramisu a little too sweet. The only thing we didn't like was the noise level with tables very close & loud customers sitting 3 tables away. Our table was on the 3rd level. Nice touches - champagne & limoncello were complimentary.

The ambiance of this restaurant was exactly what I was seeking.A glass of Prosecco ( on the house) was served on our arrival. On both occasions our meal was excellent and a complimentary glass of Limoncello was also offered on both occasions.I would heartily recommend this restaurant for lovers of good Italian food.

Dropped in here 2 years ago and were just amazed at how good the food is. Well, we dropped in again in May and it's better!! An Italian Restaurant, run by an Englishman, with Vietnamese chefs. A bit expensive, but what an experience. Excellent staff, free champagne on arrival, complimentary "nibbles". We weren't too hungry on the 1st visit after... More

We knew this would be an outstanding experience when, within 20 seconds of being seated, we were greeted with a chilled glass of complimentary champagne. And very nice champagne too. The staff were excellent and the food better. Some of the best Italian fare i have eaten anywhere in the world. The desserts were incredible. And to finish the evening,... More

It offers something different and reviews were quite good. I got wrong ordering the thin pizza. Definitely, not its specialty.

Excellent Italian food and service in the heart of Saigon! Not cheap but they give you a choice of half portions. Not to be missed if you are sick of Vietnamese food or simply like to give some pleasure to your taste buds .
