What to say, the place is very well decorated, typical Italian style. All the staff is kind and helpful, is all manage by a family, very very friendly. Simone, the chef, is a great, i let him prepare as he wish and i ate fantastically. I will definitely go back soon.

I shared a meal with some friends in this friendly and well presented family restaurant in a great central location. The service was quick but genuinely helpful. We were presented with a great selection of starters from the mussels in porcini sauce to the platter of deli meats and home made lamb sausages. The mains were a great size and delicious. Wine list was full of Tuscan specials we ordered a nice full bodied chianti, about average price. The main thing I remember is the friendly family feel. I travel frequently for business and it had a welcoming vibe which you want to go back to. The boss is SImone and the place is run by his family.

We stumbled across this restaurant near Chinatown and enjoyed it as a nice change from Asian food. The food was authentic Tuscan and delicious. I had risotto and my wife had a papardelle beef dish and with nice fresh mozzarella and Parma ham to start. Good though expensive wine list and overall pretty expensive even at Australian standards but friendly and a nice atmosphere.

if you want no frill, simple, but really good genuine italian food... this is the place to go. unlike many overrated italian restaurants throughout south east asia here you can find food that is very very near what you can find in Italy.
it is a family run place, and it shows. as good as at home !
the food is fresh and tasty. we were a large group and therefore had a chance to try and share many dishes, may be 10 or 15. most of them were very good or excellent. among them the parpadelle al ragu and the lamb sausage with lentils.
the owner has great italian wines to recommend.
the service is family style. relaxed and unhurried.
the decor is a bit bland, but you don't come for that.
enjoy the food there !

We have been to this restaurant twice in 3 days. Expat friends in Singapore took us on the first night and we loved it so much we had to go one last time before we flew back to HK. The family are so nice; the food fresh and authentic. A nice mix of the informality of Singapore combined with the love both Singaporean's and Italian's have for family dinners as the place was busy with family celebrations
