We were there for a birthday celebration which went really well. The place also offered us a complementary celebration cake. And the food was great. specially the pizza. They also had many Italian dishes including pastas which we tried as well. Overall it was a nice experience.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Colombo, it serves variety of Italian dishes including Pizzas, Pastas and Antipasti. They have a bar lounge highlighting wines but you can get any spirit you want. One must try there Spaghetti carbonara and Ravioli di Gamberetti con Arabiatta, fantastic food. They make there own Pastas, so it's fresh and tasty.... More

Went for a quite night out with friends but ended up in a construction site with hammering, metal grinding and the all works just meters from our table. Not fussy, but if they are not going to act upon it, then they should just admit it rather than to make you believe that it will stop after 5 minutes. That... More

I usually visit this place with my family or friends. It's a really nice homely set up. With Family, I usually get the 19" oven baked pizza for this kids. The rest of the menu items are also great. Also like to friendly staff at the Bar and the cocktails they offer.

Excellent spot. Food is very good and usually consistent. Waiters are generally well trained for Colombo standards. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere with options of sitting on the verandah, upstairs or out in the garden area. They also have a trendy air conditioned bar area with a large screen and decent music. Shorts not allowed in bar area. My favourite... More

This is located near to House of Fashion, well popular Horton place road in Borella. If you have an idea to go to Swiss Embassy, or any other embassies then you may try this place too. Though little bit expensive than the other ordinary places, you can enjoy the cost worthy meals with Sri Lankan hospitality.

I went to this place with my girlfriend and they offered us seats in the Blue Room which was a bit hot at the time. But it went to normal. Food was awesome. We tried their pizzas, fresh juice and chocolate milkshake. The A/C needs fixing but other than that everything else was awesome. Really friendly staff as well. Definitely... More
