“Fantastic Valentine's Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I came here for a Valentine's dinner with my fiancé. We had just got engaged that day and the staff were extremely welcoming and very happy for us! We received a free glass of champagne as well as receiving outstanding service with awesome views over the water of Georgetown. Romantic setting, courteous and efficient staff and delicious, genuine Italian food. We couldn't believe it when we got the bill - excellent value! Cannot recommend this place highly enough :-)

“Great food and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Found the place on Tripadvisor and decided to go there for dinner. A bit hard to find. It is nearly opposite the ferry to the mainland.
An excellent restaurant that I can recommend to everybody! The food was very good, great service, large choice of very good wines and all in a very nice ambiance. Next time in Penang for sure we will visit again!

“nice ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Liked - the simple yet authentic food. great attentive service from the friendly staffs. ambience of the restaurant is romantic and relaxing. very tall ceiling, tables are not arranged close to each other, so the space is really airy. lighting is warm and nice. parking's abundant.
Be there early or book way ahead.
A bit pricey though.
