Coming from Munich and living in JB we had been very happy to find this place. Not only because the owner Hans is a great host and fun to talk to, main reason is the food. Everything was just perfect and felt like home (Munich is called the most northern Italian City). Tiramisu was really the best we had, Pizza... More

The grand chef is actually an Italian and he has high standards and the raw products are always fresh. He is like the Gordan Ramsey of Johor which goes without saying, if the food on... More

This is really a place you must try and love! Once you walk in, the comfortable and inviting ambiance is obvious. On their menu the night we were there, they had beautifully marbled wagyu that was unsurpassed in tenderness and taste. Their menu choice is very varied. My group had wagyu, tenderloin, sirloin and seafood, and all the dishes were... More
