Suprisingly OK

I came here with my wife just have a break from the kids. At first I was a bit dissapointed since the chair was not comfortable at all. Secondly when I look at the menu. Not to be snobbish but my thought first think that the price is a bit to cheap for wagyu. But honestly to my suprise the... read more

I go here already a few years and it remains by far the best in Indonesia. I have tried Italian in Jakarta, bandung and Bali. Special thanks to Ninik who was perfect in her service. Good wines and grappa and Illy coffee. Food is always good. Service with thanks to Ninik is excellent.

The food was excellent. Real good authentic Italian. But the service let us down in just about every aspect. Dishes arriving at different times, no water on the table, plates not cleared away. I wish the service could be as polished as the chef. Quite good value too; although a classy western restaurant, the prices were not outrageus. Oh, and... More

Having been to Italy, the food here tasted bland. That's not to say that it is not delicious. The menu was very complete. The food portion was a bit small for the price. The atmosphere was good as the interiors were nice. The AC was hot though. The dessert could have been better. But if you're looking for a decent... More

We are an Expat Couple in East Java since one year and pamper ourselves in this authentic European restaurant twice a month. We trust their quality because the owner is a swiss national with an italian mother and combines many southern mediterranean "culinary influences" onto the dishes which are being changed on daily basis (menu del giorno) The meat is...

I took a bite of the free bread they served,,and something was off. All the bread slices have spores on the underside. How is it that no one check the detail of what they are serving to customers? So I called in the waitress and showed her the spore infested bread. Once I found that a restaurant not paying attention... More
