Good Italian restaurant at the Crowne Plaza hotel. The ossobucco with risotto was excellent. Everything was fresh and copious! The service was also very good, friendly and competent.

My compliment to the chef. My first impression... More

Nestled beside reception of the Crowne Plaza this is a friendly small Italian restaurant serving great range of food. My squid stater was outstanding and my pizza was very good. My colleagues starter and risotto were also of great quality. Service was impeccable.
