We tried it because it was looking good in lonely planet-book. The food was expensive and really, really bad. The worst we had in Sri Lanka by far. Nothing to do with italian cuisine! A turist trap!

Walked in and the restaurant was empty, maybe due to our 18:30 meal time. The male who served us took a long time to attend to our table. Both a dog and a cat walked around the restaurant, hovering by our feet. We both ordered...More

There was nothing italian in the food we ordered. My daughter's pizza was barely ok, but frozen and small for the price. My risotto was not even made of arborio rice and there was no apparent parmesan cheese. It was only standard white rice in...More

We had two terribly overpriced frozen[!] pizzas with very random stuff on them. I don't even want to go into the so-called antipasti.
