We were not expecting much from an Italian restaurant in Bali but we were pleasantly surprised with the high standards of this excellent Italian restaurant (formal dining). The Italian chef, Mr. Bessard (sp?), has created a truly divine menu and the food here was better than some of the best restaurants that we have visited in Italy. They are indeed very lucky to someone of his caliber at this property. The restaurant is expensive, but worth every penny. I highly recommend the Lambo di Agnello in Crosta di Caffe "Illy" Zucca Brasata (Lamb loin Illy Coffee Crust). We liked it so much that we ordered it again. You will love it! I also tried the buffet on Monday nights and it was fabulous. The Sea Bass was cooked perfectly. We stayed at this lovely hotel and everyone was very friendly and eager to please us. I can't say enough good things about this really great restaurant in a fantastic hotel by the beach.
