Even the local Chefs which come from Italy can't manage to pull it off. This wood fired pizza reminds me of Naples! (Which is the very best in... More

This restaurant had some amazing Italian food which reminded us of back home. The pizza was excellent, the best we had in Ho Chi Minh City. Every dish was excellent from the risotto to the tiramisu dessert. Don't be deterred from the way the exterior looks. It is beautiful inside with interior and exterior dining.

Lunch for two - Seafood pasta and Pork Milanese. A large bowl with a small portion of Spagetti, two small prawns and two clams, in a Tomato sauce Partner unimpressed. My Pork Milanese came with a small green salad with what appeared to be frozen string chips. The Pork was tasteless and tough, and the admittedly blunt knife struggled to... More

Ever since I was little, I've lost count of how many times my family and I would go there for pizza, the staff is very nice and friendly, the food is a little bit expensive but worth it, the decorations are great, the terrace is amazing whether it is for dinner or lunch, I highly recommend you to go there,...

Missing a taste for some western food we fortunately walked by this restaurant when starvation struck. We ordered a pizza and split an order of pasta .....both were quite good. Relatively authentic tastes and flavors and the pasta was actually al dente as was ordered. Worth a visit if you should crave an Italian meal.

Authentic italian cuisine. Great service. If looking to get away from traditional Vietnamese cuisine for a night ... this is the place.

We just visited for dinner today. Food is okay and price is fair. However, they never accept our discount card after issued the bill.
