Totally recommended if you want to have the best Italian dinner in town! Price is above average. The only point to raise is, pizza could be improved. Nothing to say for the rest, just extremely good!

We had a nice business diner meeting with our local associates, dishes were of good quality but the service was lacking high end restaurant techniques, we have been told this place is one of the best in Kinshasa, some anticipation and a quicker service would have pushed me rate excellent.

This is by far the best restaurant in town in terms of both food and service. I visited Acasamia, which is ok in terms of food, waiters were ok, but the manager, Eric has no basic sense of service - he not only did not excuse himself for changing my reservation table even when I had made the reservation 2...

This restaurant is always busy so make a reservation to avoid disappointment. Great setup excellent patrons and a friendly owner and staff. This appears to be the restaurant if choice for most of Kinshasa's expatriates and executives. Give it a try with your business partners. I think smoking is allowed so that may be a bit uncomfortable.

My taxi driver struggled a bit to find this restaurant and I can understand why: there is not very clear signage to say one has arrived at the restaurant. Outside, the restaurant does not look like much and you wonder what you are getting yourself into but the moment you enter, you step into another world far away from Kinshasa.... More

This is a great restaurant in Kinshasa. The atmosphere is lovely, whether you're there for a romantic dinner, business dinner, or just want some good Italian food this is a great place for it. The food is very good, obviously it's not Italy, but everything's is good. I went there several times, the pizzas and salads are fantastic! The pasta... More
