I was here few month ago and during my last visit last week I found the place always outstanding. We had the asparagus promotion dishes that were just perfect. Tasty and well presented with such a good value for money. Definitely will come back again next time. Keep it up.

in a city where standards in the leading restaurants are high, it is disappointing to find a place that shows no passion in serving food and poor standards of service. It is billed as an Italian restaurant but it is difficult to see what is particularly Italian about this place. We were served "antipasti" which consisted of little more than... More

This place serves classical italian food and can be a good option if you want to lunch or dine while shopping in City Center mall. The food is quite good but nothing really fancy. The atmosphere is quite nice but it lacks some light. Not bad, not outstanding. A reasonable choice for a casual meal.
