I never write reviews online but thought that after my experience tonight I should share this Italian gem off the beaten track. It already has rave reviews online and is a quick under 10 minute tuk tuk ride on the other side of the river. I love food and find a good meal, with good company in a beautiful setting an experience I look forward to. The restaurant is set in this gorgeous garden with individual tables set amongst their own little private space surrounded by flowers and trees. Perfect place for a group or just a romantic dinner stuffing your face with deliciousness. I was with my boyfriend and we are backpackers on a budget. The quality of food for the price is amazing. We started with the grande antipasti which had a assortment of homemade meats and cheeses, bruschetta, amazing marinated eggplant, salmon crostini, caprese and warm bread. They take so much pride in making all their meats and cheeses in house, along with their dough and pasta. The appetizer was $9 and worth every cent. Next we both had the cheese filled gnocchi. So light and fluffy, not doughy at all. Exactly how it should taste. Mine was puttanesca style and was wonderful and my boyfriend had his with ham, mushrooms, fresh cheese with a cream sauce. Our pastas were $6.50 and I was stuffed, which doesn't happen often. We ended with the chocolate mousse which was light and round with great chocolate flavors without a heavy richness. The meal was wonderful but it was even better because both the owner Roberto and the chef Ti Ti came over to introduce themselves and tell us a bit about the restaurant. Such friendly warm people. It was a gem hearing the chef talk about his food with so much passion, pride and love for what he does. telling us about the meats and cheeses they make, the fresh ingredients from Italy they receive. The owner even offered a cheese plate for us on the house. We are leaving siem reap in 2 days but are going back for one last meal. One of my most enjoyable Italian meals I have had and topped off with wonderful hospitality. Don't miss this place!
