There was nothing special about this visit. The garlic bread with mozzarella was extremely salty I ordered the lasagne and was told it was no longer available. This was disappointing. I therefore ordered a caprese salad no black olives. It was served to me covered in olives. No seasoning, bland... read more

Abut a minute after the server had taken our order I realised I had ordered the wrong main meal. I called a different server over to explain that I... More

A good place to stop if you are shopping at Mirdif City Centre and feel like a pizza! We ordered the Sfilatino which were delicious, maybe a little too big for lunchtime but we were hungry! Complimentary warm breads and spreads on our table were very good, the lime soda which they make is delicious so why only an average... More

I used to like going to this place when it first opened. However, after the Chef has been changed, the food taste has been declined to below average. The service is not bad. I am no longer visiting this place after a couple attempts that the food might have been improved.

The menu has good options but the staff is rude, not friendly and look like that they don't want to attend you. In our case, the starter arrived after we ate the main course..and some plates doesn't looks like in the menu.
