We went here to host a little party on behalf of a friend who was getting married. It was a very quick decision, so we were not even sure that we will get a private place. But Voilah...!!! They arranged us an ideal setting which perfectly aligned with our requirement. We loved the feel of the place. We dined downstairs... More

The drinks were good, the food was great. Not many people were around that day apart fro ma few drunks, which was the only downside. But not blaming the venue for that.

Our expectations were not met during our last visit. We sat in the balcony and we had to run around looking for waiters whenever we wanted anything, Service was poor as they seem understaffed. Food was not up to the mark, although the portions were good. the Pork chop was bland and pasta wasn't great either. The food is reasonably... More

The bar/lounge area at the Bayleaf is one of my favourite places to visit when in Colombo. While it's quiet most evenings with a few regulars who hang out there virtually daily (!) it can get crowded from Thursday onwwards. The tapas here are different to what you get at it's sister location, Curve, and are excellent in their own... More

There are few places, you accidentally visit/ visit without prior introduction. But always giving a nostalgic pleasure to go and go again. In a hopeless night with my best friend searching for a place to have the dinner, I just chosen this place over my room mate's recommendation. We had a margarita and a seafood pizza, probably one of the... More

You could spend your valuable time at this place and definitely you would enjoy the time spent. One thing to highlight, the pizza we ordered was not all that warm when it was served to the table but however taste was up to the mark. Staff is very friendly and polite and the service standards are pretty good.

We just arrived in Colombo and found this place on Trip Advisor. The service was exceptional! Food was prompt and tasty. It's not a cheap place but it's worth the extra rupees for the experience.

Had a dinner here with my friend on the first night in Colombo. I was impressed about the quality of the food served here far away from Italy. I had a pasta dish baked in the oven I must admit the pasta was perfectly cooked al dente and it was very delicious. The atmosphere is also very nice with the... More
