Atmosphere, convivial host, and simple but honest and tasty Italian food. Even a power cut didn't spoil the evening!

What a fantastic find. Love Italian food and who would have expected that one of the best meals I have had would be found so far from home!
Paolo entertained., amused and held court all evening ably assisted by his lovely girls, despite the power cut!
Try it, you'll like it

You can find Italian cuisine everywhere, you can learn how to cook Italian cuisine but you cannot learn italian hospitality. In this restaurant, you don't have only good italian food but nice italian hospitality, you don't feel in a restaurant but you are in a family tratoria and this make the difference with the others, you feel welcome. Paolo, the owner and his son represent what everybody loves from Italy and I will for sure visit him and his staff again when I will be in Cebu.

Well i have to say that i was not suprised by the totally average everything about this place. Nobody really goes here and few know about it and for good reason. It has ok pasta but nowwhere as good as its more well known competitors. Easy to find but i cant think of a reason to return.

average italian food but I liked the old world, borderline tacky decor. It felt like a mob joint not a romantic spot, which I am not sure if they were trying to go for this but it worked for me.
