Excellent Italian

Not too far from Sarova white sands where we usually stay. It is next to a big mall. While the ambience is not very special. The food was excellent. We want with friends making us 9 in all and not a single person was disappointed in their dish.

This establishment has made a comeback with the return of Alberto who goes out of his way to ensure his guests are well catered for. A good lunchtime venue as there is not much pressure on the serving staff. The food is consistently good despite an extensive menu.
