My wife and I visited for a meal on a wet night and got the full personalised service as it was a very quiet night! For a change in KK we didn't have to explain Gluten Free because the staff are fully conversant and offered plenty of GF options! Our pastas were exceptional and the drinks menu provided a lovely...

Great location for a romantic meal on the waterfront. Chef and staff are very friendly and engaging whilst not being too intrusive so you can savour the ambience.The food is exceptional. We had a pizza and the steak and it was all cooked to perfection. Drinks were reasonably priced and they had a great choice of wine compared to other... More

The pasta was really fresh, cooked to perfection. You know you don't mind waiting for really good italian paired with great selection of wine. Will visit soon, tips if you don't wanna wait too long, come early or avoid dinner hours ;-)

That's good! Italian chef, for real, italian ingredients, all fresh and prepared at the moment, great taste, thin and crunchy pizza perfectly cooked. All the staff is smiling, the atmosphere is relaxing just in front of the sea, or better on the sea. A must try is also the coffee.... all remember me several very good restos in Italy! The... More

As some reviews have called it the best Italian food in KK This might be in some peoples openion but we did not think so. Just by reading the owners comments to... More

This restaurant should be number 1. We have trained in Florence in Italian cookery and the food served by the lovely Italian chef in this restaurant is as good as Italy. Fresh, genuine ingredients... Simply sublime. This restaurant perhaps doesn't know how good it is and needs to employ a few more waitresses because the place was full and only... More

it was so surprising to find in Kota Kinabalu such an high quality Italian cousine! the food is fresh and traditionally Italian made and composed, the pizza, made at the Roma's style (which means it is thin and light) was so delicious and so was the salad, the cozze soutè and all we had .. we just couldn't believe we...

We basically opted for this place due the menu AND the availability of a seafront table. Glad we did, because we had some really tasty and thin pizza. They have decent wine too, so nearly can't go wrong.

Thank Patrick B
