A very good dining experience with friendly staff and delicious food. The seafood pasta and pizzas are very good and they specially made Spaghetti Bolognese for my 4 year old as they don't have a kids menu. The only downside was that both our deserts sounded very nice on the menu but were poor. Would definitely recommend.

This restaurant has a good ambience, the interior design is simple but nice, the staff is also efficient and friendly. The salad, too, is fresh! I would definitely visit again whenever I crave Italian food.

Wow the food here is awesome with reasonable pricing. We ordered the lamb shank which is so soft.. excellent. The mushroom soup tastes great so as their freshly baked lasagne. Their squid dish maybe not so appealing.. a little bit lack of flavor for us but overall its excellent. Will visit again!

I have been there many times: with friends, co-workers, family... and everytime, i never been disappointed. The food is very good, maybe a little expensive but it's awarded! Nice wine selection, nice atmosphere inside the restaurant. I suggest to stay upstairs... feels good! The staff is very friendly, very helpful! Same goes for the Owners/Managers.
