Food not all that impressive. Service was rather poor, met by unfriendly (rather stuck up staff). Read about the place in Lonely Planet which recommened the place. However, not great food and lack of customer service.

How is this place not as popular ? Tired of the usual rice and curries, we went in search of Koko's and Il Rustico (does this place even exist?) and found this gem instead. Superb pasta, soups and entrees. For no more than 1000 rupees per dish.We were floored by the shrimp souffle and the minestrone with beans. Not sure how many their places in this area will serve affordable and drinkable SA wine. The service can be a problem but they are busy for a reason! We left sated and wishing this wasn't our last night in town!

I can definitely see why Lonely planet recommended Dream House. It's a lovely, calm oasis in the main area of Unawatuna. I went to lunch twice in two days, initially only going for a light lunch. The menu was so enticing and the food so good I treated myself to three courses. Everything was delicious and the prices are cheap. A must visit for anyone in the area

You need to book, small intimate garden restaurant attached to the Guest House just off Yadehimulla Road. Easy to find , well signposted at the roadside.

Beautiful garden setting. Tables all well presented. Service is easy, professional and unobtrusive.

Good menu, all the traditional Italian favourites and a few daily specials dependant on the market of the day. Shared an excellent pasts and then fresh fish. They serve beer and wine only. It is as good as Italian cooking as you are going to get, all very fresh and prepared to order.

cannot wait to go back.

Kids welcomed and well looked after.

We've enjoyed this restaurant for over 8 years and have just returned from our most recent visit and just wanted to address some of the negative reviews posted recently.

For an alternative to Asian food look no further. Fantastic simple Italian food, cooked to perfection. Sometimes the menu can be somewhat reduced but we've yet to have a poor dish! Quiet, under-stated surroundings; we visit with 2 young children who relax and calmly enjoy the restaurant. The wine is no more expensive than anywhere else.

Would highly recommend. Enjoy!
