I do visit Manali every year, sometime during summer or late October on my vacations. It is difficult to add anything new to the very favourite comments made by almost every previous guest. Italian restaurants are a classic in every place you visit. I tried it in every restaurants in Manali and Shimla where I do live in. Well, I... More

We were little tired and saw this cafe. We went inside. It was full at 9 pm. But had a table for 4 available. So we sat in. Good interiors. Ordered Pizzas. Though the pizzas were just average but overall we enjoyed. A gentleman was playing live guitar with some Sufi songs. That was the mood setter. Enjoyed!

Great pizzas and ambience, a place by the river in old Manali happening at night. A must go place for people who like hookahs and live music.

Although it was a busy day when we went leading to very slow service, the pizza and salad were decent...The river flows by the small terrace outside...a nice place.

nice seating options: lounge on the cushions or sit upright on the wooden chairs if inside, or relax on the seating on the outside, with the Beas drifting by the side nice ambience, with live music on offer at times good value for money proposition, but service is a bit slack.... Do try the terminator btw

It is a nice little place in Old Manali that has seating next to the river. One can choose to sit indoors or outdoors, both of which seem like good options depending on what you are in mood for. We were there for breakfast and were happy with the food and overall feel of the place.

the location is nice, its just on the river, food is no good and is not a place to visit with children as there is no separate section for smokers.

Food was good, service was good. They have a outside sitting area overlooking water shadowed by a big tree having lights. Only odd thing is they close down in off season - December, January or am wrong

We took the backside balcony by the river. Picked up a guitar, played and finished our beer. As the beautiful rain came down, we shifted inside to have our food. The pizzas were delicious. The place has a great ambiance and very cozy sitting arrangements. There was a band playing that evening so i joined them and jammed and hummed... More
