“Don't worry about the location, it's fine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Don't worry about the location! It's easy to find. Just look on Google maps or ask the driver to go to tang dynasty hotel - the restaurant is above the entrance to a car park next door. There's an italian flag waving outside, opposite Zurich something. Really. Not difficult to find. Remember, above the entrance to the car park, round the corner from the tang dynasty hotel.

Also it's not that busy outside. A fee cars, yes, but not too bad at all.

There is no air conditioning, but don't let that worry you, nice and airy, it's fine.

Food. Good. We had parmigiana to start (eggplant with mozzarella cheese), was good. Want with our three year old, who had made minestrone soup (for the veggies) and bread.

Mains were pizza (pretty good) and pasta puttinesca (good). Vino was okay, all good.

They also got us a taxi back as well so don't worry about getting home, they'll help (it was there in two mins).

Overall good. Don't be concerned about the location, not difficult to find, not in a dodgy area, all good. Only minus was the chinese waitress who didn't really know Italian food.

Alan!

“Memorable Christmas Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Due to other reviews advising that it was hard to find, we used google maps and then found the restuarant easily.

Due to it being Christmas Day, we had a set menu (choice of two starters, a choice of two mains and choice of desserts). We all enjoyed our meals and the service was excellent. The chef and waitresses were happy to serve the courses at our pace and the chef came out to speak to us to ask about the food.

The decor and atmosphere were lovely. It is close to a road so there is some road noise, but this added to the experience.

While this was more expensive than local restaurants it was very lovely and I would recommend it.

“Food was excellent, smoking people was not”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

The Caesar Salad was wonderful, complete in complementary tastes. Could not be happier with the food considering the cost-no-object ingredients and very reasonable prices.

However did not realize that smoking is permitted in the restaurant. We would probably enjoy the food much more.
