The place is a small covered market for traditional Italian delicacies. At the same time, the place is also a food court for traditional Italian food. There are also plenty of seating inside.

Clean environment to eat. Various choices from salad to seafood. Recommend the seafood stand on the ground floor. It provides fresh seafood and different kind of dishes, like seafood salad, rice, and mix fried seafood.
