The set lunch was fantastic. They offered starter (soup or salad), main course (pizza or pasta or meat), drink (ice... read more

Great tapas, tasty and generous portions! Loved the baba ghanoush that was served with warm bread. Had the carbonara with duck and it was delish! Service provided by Mary and TJ was efficient and unobtrusive. You can tell its a good restaurant when the owner rolls up his shirt sleeves and went to work the stoves! Will be back.

Very good service on this Saturday afternoon- food was excellent and very cheap compared to Singapore. Service was good and wine very reasonably priced. Excellent experience.

I find the restaurant over highly priced. Food presentation was very detailed. Service was normal, no personal touch to dinners. Very quiet during weekdays.

A spin-off restaurant from the same owner as Gianni's. Nice place & selection is wide considering a fusion of tasty dishes. Service wasn't that great & price is a Briton the high side. Parking is a problem during peak hours especially lunch time. Worth a visit if want to try something different

We ordered 3 set lunches, and our mains were the salmon, linguini, and pizza. They totes forgot about the pizza and served another table what we thought was our pizza. And due to that, dessert got served first. The serving staff could put on a little bit more smile, as it wasn't a super busy crowd. That said, the food... More

Went for birthday celebration with friends. TJ the server did a fantastic job with recommendations family style tapas for the table to share try the Gambas. Extended pizza offerings. Loved the tiger prawns and calamaris. Perfectly cooked lamb shank and fresh Scottish salmon as daily special served with Tuscan salad...loved it. Exceptional chocolate lava cake for dessert.

This is the sister restaurant of Gianni's, located 2 shops away. However, it's much bigger and has an open, airy feeling about it, befitting it's aspirations to be a Mediterranean restaurant. Much of the items on the menu are shared with Gianni's, with waiters furtively using the back alley to transport food between the two restaurants. Incidentally, the waiters and... More

I never tire of going to this little restaurant. It serves the best steaks ever . The price is really good : Same digits as in Singapore, but here you pay in ringgits. The staff is ever willing to let you choose either the Sweet Water menu or the menu from the sister restaurant, Gianni. Gianni's has the fantastic tomato... More
