Went here with friends and really enjoyed the meal. For appetizers we had the calamari fritti, the scallops and the roasted vegetables. All were very good. I had the seafood pizza, which was also very good. Evidently I also enjoyed the excellent Primitivo wine we chose because I know that my friends also enjoyed their meals but I can't remember... More

I visited this restaurant weekly while living in Kinshasa . The food is excellent the service is above average. Although expensive it is worth the it for the ambiance . The owner was very friendly and even insisted on giving us a lift home after a thunder storm. Now that's service ! Well done.

This is a very classy place to eat, great food, great service and a very good wine list. You can eat indoors or outside under the stars. Popular with locals and expats. A very plus bar area too, this place is well worth a visit.

It's the kind of restaurants that make you forget where you are, once you step in closing a garage door behind you. The population composition of clientele, the decoration, the food served, the whole atmosphere has nothing to do with Africa. The food is very good, the service friendly. Both outdoor and in-door sitting. A nice culinary in a city... More

Whenever I miss Italy, I go to this place. The cuisine is purely Italian (although my understanding is that the owner is not Italian, but the cook is!). I tried both the pasta and the pizzas and they are just very good. Good selection of wine! And you are lucky enough you can also get some shots of Limoncello for... More
