An Italian restaurant that offers all sorts of Italian dishes staring off from Pasta, Lasagna, Pizza etc etc. The taste is just ok and the prices are almost ok too. But somehow I feel that it can be improved a lot.

Stay clear of this restaurant, I use the term loosely. The service is horrible. Then the food comes and things get even worst. I tried their Lasagna and after 2 bites pushed the dish away.

Well from the decor of it, it seems to be a really seasoned Italian restaurant but the reality is a bit different. The variety among Italian cuisines is not much and the food quality is just OK. However, the price and quantity of serving is very good. The internal decor and ambiance is way better then the food itself.

I have been thee many times with my family.. The food taste is not what you would expect.. The staff are polite.. And they have really nice setting for families.. Perfect during the moderate weather to sit outside. I guess there are better choices around if you are fond of other cuisines.

The best thing here are the beef plate and their pizzas. Not so much with pasta though. Good taste food, pizzas are pricy. Their roof top area is great.
