Ate here twice, both times consisted of great Italian food and good service. The place has good wifi and looks the part, too. If you want nice Italian food, go here!

Italian restaurants in SE Asia is sometimes a bit of a gamble, but this one is really good. A simple spaghetti aglio, olio e peperocini can be so good if it is cooked right and mine was spot on. Only restaurant in 6 years SE Asia we returned to.

Great food and good service. Pasta was ravioli and was fresh home made and wash delicious. Burger was also really good. We asked for an antipasto plate with meat and cheese which wasn't actually on the menu but they were very accommodating and it was great. Would go again!

Wife & I both had burgers, the standard and the Double cheese. Both very fresh and both tasted great. I don't recall it being specifically expensive or cheap. Service was ok. Location on main road and is spacious. Would happily recommend this.
