Nice food with poor service. The pizza was good other than that nothing great. The waitress don’t know simple table manners. It was raining and the worker ignored us despite carrying baby. Didn’t even bother to offer an umbrella.

Have ordered delivery pizzas from here for a while but never actually visited the restaurant until now. What a lovely place. Not expensive, great quality across-the-board. Thanks.

We ordered some pizza and salads here and were very impressed! The taste was really good and the pizza was a HQ pizza! Also the taste of the bit uncommon pizza parts was really good! If you looking for a good pizza in KL it’s...definitely worth to check it out!More

Vegetarian pizza was nice. Carbonara pasta was horrible. Most staff were nice except one. Conflicting information about last order time which was not helpful. Very warm inside as aircon was not working. Wonder how long it wasn't working for. They also force you to use...valet parking at 15Rm a pop..they claim the road belongs to the management company of the buildingMore

The restaurant is designed to look like a quaint Italian pizzeria, lit aesthetically as the aroma of freshly made wood fire welcomes you! What we ordered? 1. Pizza: We ordered Paola with Tomato Sauce (really authentic), Mozzarella Cheese, Spicy Salami, Black Olives, and Gorgonzola Cheese....The crust was light and airy and the the cheesy pizza melts in your mouth (not joking). We both finished a 8 piece pizza and we’re ready for some gnocchi! 2. Gnocchi with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese (I ordered tiger prawn as an add on): It’s surprising how a dish with just 3 ingredients can taste sooo good! The pillowy soft gnocchi cooked in a tangy and sweet tomato sauce feels absolutely light, the cheese adds to the texture and flavour of the dish, and the tiger prawn cooked just right had absorbed the flavours of the sauce. 3. Tiramisu: hands down one of the best tiramisu that I have tasted! Perfect combo of creamy layers of coffee, mascarpone and cocoa! 4. Molten chocolate cake: This was my personal favourite! Loaadddss of chocolate ganache oozed out from the really thin layer of cake (really wonder how they perfected this!). This comes with freshly cut strawberries and biscuit! 5. Macchiato: The tiny cup holds a perfect blend of coffee and milk and is a perfect finish to a hearty meal! ✅Meal for two: RM280 ✅Need to reserve prior - easier via their website ✅Wait time: Around 20 minutes ✅Service: Definitely a 5/5 ✅Quality of food: Again a 5/5 ✅Will I go again?

Great location. Great effort. Ruined by its staff. We are normal people. Not celebs. We were greeted abruptly by an offensively toned - you need a reservation. The restaurant was empty. We were placed in a corner on the ground floor with the noise and...hassle of staff arranging boxes around us with little regard for the dining experience one expects in a dining establishment. After interrogation, I learned there was a place upstairs which was more pleasant. On insistence we were offered that space. Service was by a staff with poor command of english or Bahasa and it took a number of attempts to get one’s message through. There were a total of 7 persons seated upstairs we had our lunch to the loud background music of staff arranging cutlery and shifting and arranging wine boxes. They must have concluded that we were of a pedigree not deserving of a quiet and pleasant dining experience. All in all this place sums up much that is wrong in our nation. The owners have tried hard and have put this place together - the people they have entrusted with the place have let them and us down with their attitude. I wish the owners well and trust they will stay the course.More

Some points below for the restaurant to further improve: 1. Cutleries were not complete. 2. We ordered risotto, ravioli and 2 pizzas. All 4 dishes were being served in one-go instead of one by one. There was insufficient space to put all these dishes on...the table and we had to eat some of the remaining dishes lukewarm. 3. All 4 dishes were a little bit salty to our liking. 4. One of the pizzas was too watery and toppings were loosely put on top. On the bright side, staff were friendly and attentive to our needs.More

Overall, very good Italian food but the food was a little bit salty, as we didn’t have wine with our food. That said, the star for me was the Gnocchi - like eating soft fluffy pillows immersed in a buttery sage sauce.

Hello , Sure we do. But we need to specify that we don’t have a separate kitchen for it. But we surely do have many halal options.
