“Penne - Still attractive?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We had wanted to visit Penne for years. When we got there, we saw a brand new Mangii opposite, but went into Penne anyway. First impression - very quiet, dimly lit, soft music. Outdoor was unoccupied but a solitary couple made the most of it. Some odd broken furniture was dumped towards the wall - this was the view from the tables.

We ordered very little, given the fact that we had drinks earlier, and thankfully too, given the pricing.

Music was good, otherwise while peaceful, the restaurant is not 'alive'. Service was excellent, and delivery fast. The food tasted average, and the quantities felt small. The place overall feels exclusive.

We went into Mangii afterwards to check it out. Brand new place, much more lively though younger and not as private.

Given the overall choice, I would choose Mangii. They even have a 14 seater table and outdoor can be converted to a party area, although this is a review for Penne!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We visit this restaurant often for their excellent food and service. The Sunday brunch is particularly good. Apart from having a great spread of starters, and bread they serve a lot if food at the table. The service is always good and it is a great place to go to for s special occasion

“overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

This eatery is not the one for the vegetarians like me. The pizzas were no better than those we have at pizza corner and the pastas was also not to my liking! The service was slow and the person who served me was very rude. It is a very noisy place and is an over-rated restaurant

“Refreshing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

My friend and I dined here recently and were very impressed with both the food and the service. The waiter provided us with everything we required and made some good recommendations. I was surprised to see the two comments here and the fact that this restaurant is ranked below McDonalds! I would highly recommend this place.

“Crap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2009

Rip off all the way, now they are trying to become happening because they have realised how hopeless the food is. Even all the indianized version tastes like cardboard.
