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.

One of the nice restaurant in kinshasa, RDC. Feel good and enjoyed the food alot. The service is also good. Not to costly but the tastey stuff you get it here. So it forces me to give 9/10 for it.
