Food is amazing but the prices are a bit out of this world. Great ambience though. The menu is comprehensive and there is bound to be something for everyone. The location is fine but parking can be a nightmare.More

We've been to Little Italy many times we've come back to KK and every time we get wowed with the food. Whereas, this time didn't spark anything for us. We thought it was just our average evening meal, nothing special. The restaurant was practically dead...More

Set lunches are really worth the money. They have a healthy selection of pastas (handmade), sides, mains (steaks and fish), and deserts. Soup of the day was particularly fresh and flavorful (cream of potato). Pizzas were also well done! Ambience was comfortable, and i would...More

Hi! Their website indeed has a menu that does not show prices. But to us, their rates are fair restaurant charges & they really have high quality food. Maybe can send them a message about pricing in their Facebook page?
