I've never written a review for a subsequent visit as there hasn't been a need to but our 2nd visit (1st was for dinner) for lunch yesterday was so good I just have to share. I also still can't believe this restaurant continues to be ranked low (# 116 of 3,003) after 33 reviews with a 90% recommendation rate, while some top 25 restaurants have fewer reviews & lower recommendation rates simultaneously; something doesn't seem right.
Anyways, the restaurant was quieter than usual as I suppose most of its patrons are out-of-town for Christmas vacation but the team was surprisingly complete (including the 2 Italian chefs & manager). I loved the olives & tomato served with the bread basket opening; even though they were simple, they tasted fresh & delicious. The organic minestrone soup was again good, as were the cheesy but tasty "La Luce" Pizza, boar, ravioli with 3 flavors, juices & scallops (ranks as 1 of the best)! Even the complimentary salmon on carrot/pumpkin was also good; after 2 visits, everything served (whether ordered or not) were tasty; there hasn't been anything not good.
We complained about a misunderstanding & the Italian manager prepared complimentary dessert, which topped off a superb & filling Sunday lunch! Service continued to be good & this is a place where you get what you pay for.
By the way, the restaurant is located in an office building after the car wash on your left, if you're heading from Pacific Place towards Jl. Senopati, & before Pad @ 28 on your right.
