romantic not crowded at all, unlike most of Riyadh restaurants. Reservation is required but when we came with no reservation , they didn't mind to serve us after couple of minutes waiting. it was unusual that the don't have pizza on the menu. the prices are high though.

The food is excellent, the service is good but the location is on a small back street. The pastas are second to none in the city and their main dishes are very good.

The only Italian in this restaurant was me ! The chef is Egyptian and waiters are all Filipinos. They are not really able to explain an Italian dish and I had to do it with foreign people who were dining with me. As far as I generally do not trust Italian restaurants abroad, I had fried calamaris as a starter... More

To some up how great of a food experience you can expect here, this restaurant has respectfully upheld its Al dente style. Though many locals prefer overcooked pasta, don't by shy about sounding your preference when ordering and you will be pleased. Try the Scaloppini, another favorite of mine.

Its one of my favourite restaurants in Riyadh. It always seems to impress me. They have a fresh bread basket that is served before your eat which is to die for. I highly recommend this place you will enjoy almost everything.

Roma is one of my favorite cities, it is truly an open sky museum. Everywhere you go you will find mindblowing monuments. Definately a place to spend summer !
