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).

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Riyadh since LONG time ago. I really like everything in the menu but the black pepper steak and Lobester are the MUST. It is one of the few restaurants in Riyadh that serve you in a really professional way. But to be honest I wouldn't recommend the family section.

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
