Location and contact

An authentic Italian restaurant on a beautiful location on banks of West Lake. The restaurant has been established since 2010. It is extremely popular with local residents, business people and families. Ideal place for tasting authentic Italian fare such as pizzas, pastas, risotto, and lot more. We believe in traditions. All food is cooked in traditional Italian style. Even the oven we use for baking pizzas, is traditional Italian oven, fired by wood, to give it the unique natural taste that is difficult to find in other modern pizzeria. Our customers, many of whom have been with us since the start, have been our best critics, and have always told us about what they really think about the changes

Four of us looking for vegetarian food in Hanoi found this lovely little restaurant. Located on the lake front road it was pretty quiet and we enjoyed the short walk from our hotel with the fruit bats flying around. We sat upstairs and experienced pleasant...More

Very authentic Italian food. A huge menu with a great variety and something for everybody. The food took a little while to come out, as it’s always very busy, but it’s worth waiting (usually a good sign as well). The service is very nice as...More
