Authentic food and drink, tuna steak was a little over cooked, but the spinach was amazing... Great dessert... Awesome tiny biscotti to go with the espresso

The food is excellent and Matteo (the general manager) and his staff, will welcome and cuddle you from the first moment inside there. Absolutely suggested for the courtesy, for the service and of course, for the delicious food... don't miss it...

Enjoyed the pizza. They came quickly. The wine (carafe) quality average. But the place was extremely hot after a while and we found out they had turned off the AC. When we asked why it was so hot and we were sweaty they put the wall fans on. Go there on a cold day! ;-)

Just at the center close to a Starbuck, you find this restaurant with Italian Mgr and Cook. Excellent Pasta and Meat dishes. Around 30$ pp. If you Italian is a must, if not Italian you need to try.

After just over two weeks of delightful Vietnamese food, we fancied something closer to home. This restaurant really hit the spot. Great service, great atmosphere and delicious food! Well worth a try.

After four days of great Vietnamese and oriental cuisine, i was more than ready for some good old pizza comfort food. After reviewing the top ten rated pizza restaurants in Ho Chi Minh city, I settled on this one given its wood fire oven, close proximity to my hotel, and overall high rating. I was not disappointed!

Went there with family of 8, first night in Saigon - pizzas were reasonably good with good variety to choose from. After first round of drinks had to keep chasing wait staff to try and order more drinks.

Good pasta and the pizza was good, but I would have preferred a thinner crisper crust but for Vietnam the good was as good as can be expected. Better than other Italian restaurants here with better Trip Advisor ratings. The menu and service has been reliable.

Beautiful venue, cosy Italian setting with very friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant manager is native Italian along with the chef, and between them both, they make this place a must visit. The food is fantastic and the chocolate pudding for dessert is to die for!! By far, one of the best restaurants in District 1.
