My husband and I stumbled on this beautiful restaurant by accident, and what a wonderful surprise. The classic calzone was massive and easily have fed two people, the spaghetti carbonara was very tasty. I wish we had a restaurant of this quality at home in Australia. Food, service and price were all excellent.

My mistake to start with. I just assume pizza comes with cheese and tomato sauce but not here. A very small pizza arrived. Dry white dough with some tuna and tomatoes covering the inner third of the pizza. Two thirds of the pizza was simply dough with nothing on it. Again, the menu does not actually mention that there will... More

Hidden away down a lane on Nguyen Hue is a pleasant little courtyard and this great restaurant. I had heard things about this place before but I had never had the opportunity to go, so I went for a long lunch and wasn't disappointed. I opted for the simple spaghetti and meatballs and it was excellent. I'll be back to... More
