“Slow but nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Popular Italian Restaurant. I had ravioli filled with chicken in a lemon butter sauce. They were delicious however in Italy we'd say they were panzerotti. The pizza margarita was medicore at best. Sitting outside on the first floor you can enjoy the view over the crossroad.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Went to this place for lunch. The ambience is disappointing.. the place was not well-lighted inside (or should I say not lighted) so I decided to stay in the balcony. There were only 3 guests when I came.

The service is average.. a bit slow.. and the presentation is not impressive. I was given a drinking glass which was dripping with water (right out of the sink perhaps)..

The food is affordable although the quality is average. I had calamari in tomato sauce with herbs for appetizer and it tasted fine. I read that freshly prepared pasta is their specialty so I tried the waiter's recommendation - Fettucine Trattoria. The taste was average and the pasta was disappointing. The pasta was paper thin.. Pasta twirling is not possible as it would get cut the moment is touches the fork. It didn't have the right texture.
