As the titel says, then this is still the absolutely best place in town, and I always enjoy our dinners here, no matter if looking for a simple pizza / pasta, or a really nice steak, then the food is always of a very high quality, and the service is just behind by a very tiny margin. Keep up the... More

I was having a mid afternoon snack there, and the place is nice, cool, cozy with not much guest around. I ordered Super Carnivore Pizza and it was really great! I recommended this menu anytime you visit this place. I definitely will visit this restaurant when I visit Surabaya again.

Horrible, music to loud just like discotheque... The food just like dog's food , the staff need to skill improve, for local people that don't know Italian food maybe it's okay , but if you are Italia prefer go to Indonesian Food Restaurant just like Dewa Ndaru, or La Rucola needs to learn to La Pergola restaurants in Yogyakarta

Place is just average, not very good decorated (the non smoking area slightly better), once you see the menu it feels like "cheap" place (food with pictures ? come on... even some grammar mistakes on Italian name/description), but when you see the food presentation on place it looks like a canteen... The fo0d itself is not bad though, but quality/price... More

Went there yesterday for Sunday dinner. I have been craving for salmon lately, so I ordered 2 kind of salmon menu. First was Salmone Salvatico (grilled salmon) and the second one I forgot the name but the salmon was cooked with lemon sauce. I thought that the one cooked with lemon was going to be better than the normal grilled... More

Lovely restaurant with great food. I was so surprised by how authentic the flavours were - the pizza tastes like something I have eaten in Italy and the Surf, Turf and Dive dish I had as a main course had possibly the best steak I have EVER eaten. Great place.

Great Italian food in Surabaya, we usually eat there if we are in town. The only downside is the gelato, 25k for the smallest scoop I have ever seen :-). The gelato at Pisa cafe is much better at a much better price.
