Wonderful food, attentive service, outdoor terrace and indoor dining. Just perfect. Great salads, pasta and desserts, all with authentic ingredients. Nice atmosphere, with families, couples, business travellers etc. Wish it was closer to my home!

Excellent food and service but very expensive. I recommend the veal. Don't take an entrée as main course portions are completely filling your plate.

Brilliant food and wine list, just like in Italy and nice atmosphere. You need a loaded wallet, but it's worth it.

Spent a few days in Kinshasa on business and was very pleasantly surprised to find this gem. Stunning food, good service and classy, fresh decor. Had the ravioli which was superb. One of the best restaurants i have been to in a long time. Will be back

Well, this is definitely one of the better restaurants in Kinshasa. Went there for the first time last month. Enjoyed the evening and the atmosphere. The food was above average for Kinshasa, albeit a bit pricey, but that is to be expected in Kinshasa. Would definitely go back.
