Very good food. The set lunches are a great deal - RM 15 for a soup and entree.

Highly recommended for the lunches - one of the great deals I have found in JB.

Regular pricing on the menu seems high to me. Still the food is very good and the atmosphere is nice so I think you will be happy - you just maybe think it cost a bit more than it should.

I have often frequented this restaurant and it is by far one of the best, in terms of food and value. It is crowded most of the time so reservations may be necessary. You cannot get better Italian food in Johor Bahru.

I noticed that prices have increased a bit recently due to higher rental and the hiring of staff since they moved to the more exclusive area of Jalan Kuning. That is understandable. The cost of the extensive renovation must have been factored in to the food prices, one would have assumed.

Having sampled the food in Rome, Venice and Florence, I must say that the quality of food in this restaurant is very good. It is as authentic as it gets and the taste is almost similar if not better tasting than what I had in Italy. In Italy, food tends to be very salty but I think the food here is less salty. I was informed that the owner himself is from Torino, Italy.

I have sampled most of the food in this restaurant and must say that it deserves 5 stars in terms of quality and food value.

Excellent food quality form the Italian owner
Front of house service well managed by the owners wife.
Unimagitive blackboard menu repeating week after week.
Gradually pushing the prices up to naughty levels - menu appears to have the prices re-typed increased on every visit.
Relocated to Pelangi (in April 2011??)
