awesome Italian food

Rooftop restaurant in the middle of the market area. As you enter you are greeted by a genial old Italian (I assume) genteman and some old time pop/rock music.

It's on the top floor of Hotel Corbelli. This restaurant is run by an Italian man. We ordered a simple noodles dish, it was ok. But other dishes looked quite good.

On the top of corbelli on mission street the Late Don Giovanni from Italy set up a great Italian restaurant. The open air with the sea breeze with the ocean in the distance makes for good ambiance. The food is pure Italian and you need to have a taste for it. The pork chops in red wine was amazing. Costly... More

Don Giovanni is run by an amicable, flirtatious native of Bologna, Italy on the rooftop of Hotel Corbelli which is owned by another Italian. To understand this restaurant, one has to understand its owner who while being Italian in all respects has actually lived most of his life in India. His food therefore can at best be called a fusion... More

If you are a non-vegetarian, try the Parma Ham pizza and Spaghetti puttenesca, will not be disappointed. We enjoyed the difference in taste and the quality of cheese used on these dishes. It is a nice place to have dinner, considering it is a roof top joint.Be there early, on one occasion we had to settle for pastas, as the... More

Frankly I am extremely puzzled by the rave reviews that this restaurant has received. Having eaten really good Italian food on a regular basis, this food was absolutely HORRIBLE!! The bruschetta was chopped tomatoes and basil on regular toasted slices of bread. The caprese was a joke with no sign of fresh mozzarella anywhere. Rather there were some slivers of... More

Awesome food and great hospitality is the speciality of this place. Great place to Italian delicacies. We had their veg pizza and penny white sauce pasta. Both tasted very good. Heard that their lasange is also a must to try. This restaurant is located in mission street close to dominos outlet. It is a roof top restaurant located in the... More

Love the ambiance of this place, good views of pondicherry, breezy, the Pizzas are extremely good, so are the pastas. Also, on occassion, they have Lobster on the menu which is worth a try.

This Italian restaurant is on the roof top on 5th floor, on top of Hotel Corbelli, the side that face the sea is open so the continuous breeze from the sea with no fans and A/C is most refreshing. One could see the sea far away see the moon rise, have a cold beer and have your pasta, or fish.... More

Located atop the hotel corbelli . this is a place u just cannot afford to miss. The food is toooo good. The old charming gentleman who runs the place takes time to serve but serves the bestest fare in town. Tried their Foccaia, piza, sphagetti in pesto sauce and gnocchi, grilled potatoes. All of them excellent ... pizza and focaccia... More
