Very good Italian food, if not the best!

Very busy place, and that says how popular it is. Both Indonesian and foreigner like this place as one of the best Italian food place. They serve a wide selection of entrees, antipasti, and main courses. Quality of feed is very good. Moderately priced. Worth going their with big group and family.

Probably the best Italian food at Surabaya. Delicious pizza and pasta and fine black coffee for the end of the meal. Most servant can speak english quite well and will explain the menu to you in a very clear way. Price is a bit high, but quite worth the money. Parking area is very limited. The ambience is good for... More

We enjoyed some nice diner at that restaurant. Especially the pizza was very tasty. Unfortunately some of the wine on their menu was not available. Also the menu papers look a bit crinkled. A nice place to hang out anyway and unique for Surabaya. Recommendable.

Visit here for many various occasions, birthday, company gathering, meetings, hangout with friends, a romantic dinner with my husband or a takeway meal for relaxing Sunday. Nice atmosphere, and a great place to have a fine dining in Surabaya. Friendly staff. We haven't experienced any major issues so far. The service might quite slow during rush hours. But with a...

This is one of my Italian favourite restaurant. The pizza and pasta are great, risotto is uummy. A bit pricy, but worth to try. Defenetly will come back to this restaurant again. Unfortunately they only have limited parking area.

The ambience is very dim and romantic. I ordered a medium rare tenderloin with red wine sauce. The taste is good but not that special. The staff is very good and can remember our order very well. The price considered not too expensive nor cheap.

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.
