“Best Italian in PP”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is probably my favourite Italian in Phnom Penh. Although the food is a little pricey, it's worth it, as the food is absolutely delicious, and very authentic. I love the pasta here especially. The staff are friendly and the decor is trendy but welcoming. This place has a great atmosphere, and is an excellent location, right on the riverfront. Toilets are through the kitchen, which is an interesting quirk!

“Simple, good quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Italian food, very welcome after a while in the country. Great quality, althoug staff does not smile a lot -- I think we saw Giorgio and it would have been nice to have a smile and a hello from him. That said, the food was great so absolutely ok to go.

“Decent food, great service, noisy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Decided to try it out based on the reviews. Service was great, despite it being a packed house and quite noisy. There were 2-3 groups in there and it was very loud, sound seemed to bounce off the walls so that part wasn't too enjoyable, however, glad the groups were having a good time. Had the Gorgonzola gnocchi which was just okay...a bit too soft. Large servings...wish they would offer half portions/smaller portions for a discounted price. Mains seemed to run $7-$15, which is a bit high, especially since the pastas don't come with bread. Overall good food and experience.

“Big thumbs down!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

The service was great, the food was good (although had to send one dish back as the pasta was raw & white in the middle). In any case we would never recommend this place...the boss sat a couple of tables away from us and smoked a joint while we ate our food. Absolutely disgusting!
