“A gem in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We went there following a few friends reccomendations, fresh food, yummy and not expensive at all for the quality served.

the view is an add on to this nice restaurant. It worth the climbing. We started with 2 antipasto della casa to share between the 4 of us. Generous serving for 134 thousand rupiahs, all seafood presented in different recipes, the clams were tasty and fresh, a bit spicy though and the squid stuffed with peas was tasty and tender.
For main I had Gnocchi di zucca alla boscaiola, a nice combination of pumpkin kind of dumplings
in mushrooms, olives, bacon and cream sauce, very hard to find this class of cuisine in Bali, a plus.
My girlfriend ordered tagliolini lobster, again a hit! The sauce was tasty and the lobster very fresh, the pasta had the lobster taste till the last bite, a must try.
My friends shared a salmon alla pepe nero, nothing was left in the plate so I guess they enjoy it.
The service was quite attentive and the Italian chef came for a short chat which makes always the difference in a good Italian venue. He reccomended us his Tiramisu as the best in Bali, he was no kidding! We ordered 2 to share and regretted shortly after they was finished, should have get four. Creamy, flavorsome, well balanced with home made savoiardi, again a great piece of Italian traditions.
We will go back whenever we will be at Jimbaran area craving for good Italian food.
The restaurant was quite packed on friday night and we had a table by chance so I think is better to book at least in weekends.

“One of the best italian restaurant on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Yesterday night i had a romantic dinner with my girlfriend and, i have to say, everything was perfect. The setting, the view, the music, the atmosphere, all is great over there.
We had a rich and crispy pizza to share as a starter, some fresh seafood for the main course, and an homemade rhum babba' dessert as only in Napoli I had one like that before; i was really impressed. The skilled chef is Italian, a very nice guy that came to see in person if everything was all right and gave some directions to the well trained and kind staff that waited on.
Prices are fair.
I'll definitely go back really soon

“Will NOT Return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Went twice to this Restaurant, thinking it was an off night the first time, but nothing changed. Averag food, lousy service. The only thing decent was the view. Will NOT recommend nor go back again.

“Rip off!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We ate there tonight. The food and service were just okay, but they charged us 200,000 rupiah corkage for a bottle of champagne we had brought to celebrate our anniversary, I couldn't believe it! Absolutely disgusted, how can they justify this expense when last night we were charged 50,000 corkage elsewhere for a bottle of wine. They early charged extra because it was champagne and it was listed as as such on the bill. Outrageous, not even in expensive Perth would you ever pay this much, it turned out to be nearly 1/3 of our bill, and for what the use of two glasses and a bucket of ice (we did also purchase other drinks duting the meal. Rip off!

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Great location, good food, reasonable price. Could not fault service. Waitress extremely conscientious and friendly. Well worth the visit especially if you dont do the typical Jimbaran seafood fare. We will be going again and again.
