“relaxing lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a great little restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. We sat on a shady patio covered with vines which was cool even tough it was a very hot day.. The ravioli and gnocchi were both delicious and were beautifully presented - could have been in any nice Italian restaurant. I had an ice cream in espresso for dessert - great!. My son went a again a few days later and had another good experience. I like that the profits go to a good cause.

“Homemade pasta to support a local nonprofit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a cozy little Italian joint whose profits go to a good cause. The homemade pastas are delicious and reasonably priced (about 3000 cfa or $6 USA), although the portions are small. My only complaint is that I can never figure out when they're actually open. Hours are strange and don't appear to be consistent.
