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.

This is by far one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten in. During my 3 week stay in Surabaya, I ate here at least 2x a week. Pasta, carpaccio, the steak - everything is amazing!

As much as we love Asian food, we fancied a change and tried this restaurant. It is much larger than we thought but still reasonably ambient. The food was very good - we shared a bruschetta starter and a pizza. Both were tasty and the portions large. We also enjoyed a couple of cocktails and although we did not sample... More

Love the angel hair pasta and fritto misto. love the pizza too! However the service can be quite slow during weekend when the restaurant is packed. Not great for party but a great place for couple of friends to hang out.

The atmosphere is quiet when you come at the right time, which is the kind that i prefer. But some days, they are packed and orders flying around and it is so noisy. The food was overall great.
