“Excellent Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

There is the possibility to sit inside, outside under the roof or under the stars, and there is a bar for those who enjoy to mingle with friends and have a drink. When we went there the place was crowded, about 99% of the patrons are expats which seems to be the norm with restaurants in Dar es Salaam frequented by expats. Tortellini and the pizza were very tasty. The service was friendly and very efficient, probably because my colleague knew the waiter.

“Good Pizza and coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Arrived very late one night, was worried they wouldnt let us in, but they served us no problem. Food was great, best pizza in a while, and a great coffee. Not the cheapest place around, but worth it.
Lovely gardens, and great ambience.

“Can be hit or miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The food here is excellent. Good plain Italian and is tourist safe. But you can also have a bad selection from time to time. Not perfect. And also the service can be a bit abrupt at times. But all in all will eat here again my next trip.

“tasty Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

great place to enjoy some italian food, nice atmosphere and good service.
Toilets are not in ideal clean conditions for a place with such clientele, also seem to have issues with power and not sufficient generator to accommodate, so if there is no grid power, some dishes are not available.
but all in all, nice place to dine.

“Best restaurant in Dar?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Really nice layout and setting, a bar and about 3 different area to choose to sit. Always busy which is a good sign. Everything I've ordered has been perfect, I havn't tried their pizzas but I've heard they're the best in Dar (not too difficult, granted). Good wines, excellent service. All the timeless Italian classics on the menu, and fresh tasting seafood. A tad hard to find, but once you know it you'll be back again and again.
