This was our second visit and we were once again blown away. The octopus, eggplant, prawn ravioli, lamb shank, tiramisu and panna cotta were excellent, as were the wines and cocktails. Prices were very reasonable. Definitely one of the top restaurants in Langkawi!

Compliments to the chef. Food is excellent. The angus steak is very good and we have eaten in many italian restaurants in KL. Surprisingly the best is found in Langkawi at Nerro Gallo.

This place was recommended by a dear friend. We arrived at 8.30pm and ordered 3 escargot 1 scallop for starters, and 3 lobsters and 1 stake for the mains. The starters came after 30mins and it was not bad... We had our wine while waiting...for our main dishes. After another hour, we ask for our main but the waiter said they had just began to defrost our lobster (what were they doing an hour and a half ago?) then the owner of the restaurant, also the chef, came out to talk to us. He seems drunk as he could not stand straight and he scolded us for our impatient. Why can't we wait 5 mins for our food when he had waited to open his restaurant after one half year due to covid lock down..... So we thought we can't reason to someone... Angry and drunk... So we cancelled our order and paid for what we ate. He even threatened to call the police... Thanks to his staff... We manage to pay and leave to find a better place to dine in.... I hope the chef recovers from depression...More

Came here for lunch before taking flight back home. Very near to airport so it's good place to get some foods before or after flight. Lunch set is very value for money, good portion and tasty. Will come back again next year for dinner.

The food is great at very reasonable prices. Chef Lorenzo cooks with passion and this Italian restaurant is in a fairly remote tourist island of Langkawi. Excellent duck confit and great tasting appetisers. Friendly staff as well.

Hi Hizumi, we don’t serve pork and at the moment we don’t like to use any alchool in our cooking but we are fully licensed and we have a fantastic Italian wine cellar if you like wines..
