“The way the owner treats the staff isn't appropriate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

We went there for the valentines special. We could choose between several appetizers, main courses and desserts. The food was average, and for the price we paid definitly overpaid.
The owner is friendly with the guests, but very rude to the employees.

“Nice Italian.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Nice quaint restaurant with some good Italian food. Loved the complimentary sparkling wine and 7-up for the kids as well as the breads and dips. Would recommend the pizzas and al ragu pasta. Staff were attentive and friendly. All in all 2 great nights in a row!

“Good Value Food”

Just from the time we arrived at this restaurant, we were treated special. Food was great and the extra little things like welcome drinks and bread etc just put us all in a great mood for a top night

“Little Italy I the heart of Saigon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

May not be the very best Italian food that I have ever had, but is well prepared balanced and, at thes even creative. What really makes this 3 story hole n the wall special is the ingredient that every fabulous Italian restaurant provides, you feel like you are eating The home of a dear friend somewhere in Chianti. What more can you ask.
