We went to dinner at this restaurante. The food seems like it has been heated. The pizza was only a few mushrooms and the lasagne was average. Definitely not recommended this restaurant, specially if you like to have dinner after 8:30pm.

Yes I know it might seem odd to be dining at an Italian restaurant in Vietnam. But if and when uve had ur fill of pho and spring rolls then this should be ur next stop. Had the squid ink pasta w seafood in a white wine sauce! Was great!! Staff was also very friendly

Having read several reviews, Fernando was high on my list of "where to eat". Disappointed ! The place does not convey a sensation of cleanliness. The fettuccine al pesto were substandard: the home made pasta (actually it was lasagne) was very much "al dente" (i.e. still raw) and the pesto sauce did not taste of basil. The fish was also...

But this not good, not " fresh " prepare ( maybe from freezer ? ) Big deception for me, and i don't go back on this restaurant long time. This is curious, because before,... More

This place is as good as it was 4 years ago when I first came. It has one of the best beef carpaccios that I've ever had that's including in Italy. Lasagne was great, calzone was good but a bit dry. Pasta is always good. Definitely a great Italian taste.

The service and food was great. The calzone was delicious and with heaps of cheese just how I like it. The waiter was quick to serve and very polite. One disappointing thing was to see how the owner treated his employees, so rude and dismissive of them. I don't want to see/hear that when enjoying a meal, especially when the... More

The success of the restaurant is undoubtedly attributed to the owner Fernando, a person really friendly and very nice that welcomes and entertains its customers in a charming way. Good food, great service, pleasant ambient and appropriate price.

We ordered the pizza pazza, or crazy pizza and it was anything but. It seemed like the employees were rushing to close up shop and perhaps thats why our pizza was sub par. I had to shake excessive amounts of salt and pepper to make the pizza remotely taste like anything but plain dough.

Disappointed with this restaurant. Food was ok, service was ok, really nothing to say not terrible but not special.

Visited here as we fancied a change to Vietnamese food. Food was at best bland and average. Bruschetta was not toasted, no garlic, bread felt stale and was flavourless. Breaded chicken came with a few chips and no salad and meatball spaghetti wasn't great. Owner was smoking in the restaurant and when the main course was brought to us the... More
