Following a great success in the heart of the city, the Pendolasco family has opened a new branch, for all the people living in the many residential areas located around district 2. What was once an old villa has been brought back to a beautiful restaurant that with its decorations, resembling the ancient Pompeian drawings, gives a special warmth to all the guests. As the original Pendolasco, the new restaurant offers authentic Italian dishes such as the traditional : " Wood fire oven Pizza " Looking for a good meal delivered to their door steps ?

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Delicious Italian food and serving sizes. With bread basket too! Yum! lovely selection of wines and lovely italian atmosphere. Lunch time can be noisy, dinner time too, but I guess thats a sign people are happy! Lovely surroundings and an Italian maitre d'. Yummy desserts too! I'd recommend the panna cotta.

“Good stuff....Slightly expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Was here for dinner along with a colleague. A number of vegetarian choices. Everything we tried was good...soups, starters, pasta. Lots of bread on the house. The staff are friendly, patient and understand English well.

Overall a nice place to visit. Slightly expensive.
