the chef is italian and if you are italian or speak the language, you probably can chat with him. The food is really good especially the experience would be much enhanced with a couple due to romantic atmosphere.

The restaurant is very compact and cozy in terms of size, and the decor is average. They first serve you with garlic flat bread along with olives and marinara sauce as a dip, which is excellent. For starters we ordered "Orchidea dell Oceano" (Shrimps in a mascarpone cheese and mustard relish sauce) and "Fritto misto della casa" (Deep-fried crispy shrimps and calamari rings in a lime flavored butter served on a bed of lettuce and Remulade sauce). The first order is a must! The second was also very good. We also ordered a margherita pizza, and it was excellent, the crust, the sauce and the cheese are perfect, a must try! I wanted to try some of the pasta dishes on the menu but I went with the safe option and ordered a Penne with chicken and creamy marinara sauce (also called pink sauce) , and it was okay, but not that good. The pasta was a bit too hard, and the sauce too thick. I should have ordered something out of the menu, but maybe next time! Overall, this is one of the best restaurants in Al Khobar.

Really high end sea food restaurant recommended by the Intercontinental. Took business guests there and was extremely impressed with the service, food quality and choice. Not cheap, but never the less good value. If you go for the seafood platter be careful as it is priced by the kg and they don't hold back. Ask for a price first.
