I eat there often because it is walking distance from my office. The food is good but there's nothing special in the menu. It is safe to eat there

I had ravioli which suppose to be home-made ( they were not ). Chef is not even Italian, not a single staff in there is. It has only the name Italian. Italian restaurants don't have pasta with pink sauce in the menu. Sorry but I will not go there never again

this place used to be the 'italian restaurant' of the century until the restaurant explosion of riyadh after 2004. now, its really just an old place trying to survive with not the best food (major down grade).
