“Hi quality Italian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Excellent service to pair with the great food. It's just quality all the way thru. It's best when the weather is warm, to enjoy the outside patio. The margarita pizza with salami cooked in wood oven is some of the best I've ever tasted. Also the smoked seared tuna is full of flavor and great presentation.

“A blasting italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

For being in italy quite few times this restaurant is one of the first i m thinking about italian food. Fresh creative and tasty... Ok the price is too high but comon you are in seoul! Definitely 100 times better than other so called italian in the city where korean guy bring their gf trying to be romantic (the one at sheraton walkerhill for example). Here you will pay the price for real korean food!

“Lovely food, Nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Was introduced to this restaurant and the head chef by the other half and we met her friends for dinner there. Located in the Apgujeong area, it exuberates class while staying a little casual for a nice dinner with friends or with a loved one. They are an italiano restaurant and food tasted lovely! Recommended if you need a pasta/pizza fix. Thank You Yoshino for a great meal!

“Good italian in Seoul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Nice place for good italian food in Seoul. located in the somerset Palace apartment hotel in the Insadong area. Try to get a table outside in the courtyard as they play crappy techno music quite loud inside. The lunch buffe for 22.000 won is very good.

“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Having lived in Italy, I think I can say with some certainty that this restaurant is about as close to the 'real thing' as you are likely to get outside Italy itself.

Of the dishes our group ordered, the pizza and gnocchi were exactly as they should be, whilst the quail eggs wrapped in bacon were amazing and very well prepared.

Considering it is in the ground floor of a hotel, the owners have done well with the decor as well - along with the delicious food it makes for a pretty authentic and worthwhile experience if you are in the mood for Italian food in Seoul.
