The place is a little difficult to find. It is nested in M hotel. But once you arrive, things get on for the better. Expect excellent and welcoming service from the staffs. Food is served reasonably quick and tasted good. There is a notice outside the restaurant mentioning about dress code; No shorts and slippers. We were not prepared for... More

The service is good and prompt. Staff was polite and attentive.Generally, the food was delicious and reasonably priced.The smoked duck topping pizza and Aglio Olio pasta were especially good. However was a little disappointed with the Rocky Road Sundae. Quite and cosy environment with a serene view of the greens, very relaxing.

A must-to-go place for all couples! The candle lights set your mood and you’ll love the amazing ambiance in no doubt. It’s one of the best places in romantic restaurants. And if you love the Italian food, you cannot avoid once you visit the place. Limited but amazing menu.

Food is authentically good. Service is good too. Cozy and quiet place tucked behind M Suite Hotel Johor Bahru. Nice Christmas deco. Had the pasta and it was really good. Lovely desserts. Will definitely go again

This is one of the most authentic Italian restaurant in JB and I had enjoyed their a la carte menu, However, the groupon offer which was very reasonable was a bit disappointing. We found a plastic strip in our beef pizza and the tomato paste for the pasta was too sweet. The salad was miniscule.The coffee and the tiramisu were... More

Went here for my boyfriend's birthday. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Prepared a very nice table for us. The setting was perfect. Food was really good. Would recommend their mushroom soup, carbonara and pizza. They even got a lovely tiramisu slice of cake which was very prettily decorated. Worth every penny spent.
