This restaurant offers an alternative to surrounding malls. Menu offers a variety of food with an italian flair. I had the calzone and it was tasty and a good portion size. Choose between inside, outside or upstairs tables; depending on your preference.

My sister and I were harassed and our lives threatened by the manager and the waiters after we complained about the burnt food we had been served. The manager blatantly told us that we must just accept what we got. He then proceeded to argue with us, even after we told him we were regulars at the restaurant and had... More

Took my dad for lunch on Sunday for his birthday-What a disappointment-While the atmosphere and environment is so inviting the quality of the food is really poor. The chirizo and calamri pasta-was dry and chewy and and unedible (think the calamri was stale), the seafood platter wasn't actually a platter it was more like a few bits and pieces of... More

The setting and atmosphere is very good but when one of the three dishes is of pathetic quality one has to wonder. Not that the ingredients were not good, but I must ask, is this a omelette? My scrambled eggs on the other hand was good. The third dish was, and I quote, "umm, I'm eating it because I'm hungry"... More

I had some time to waste and came here for a beer. From arrival Jabu (looks like she's the floor manager) has been on top of things. Welcoming me, and getting my beer order ever before I had chosen a seat. When ready for my second beer, and my waiter was busy, she spotted from across the room, and with... More

Tuesday afternoon lunch - service was slow - very slow. This was not the first time we have been there and each time we tell ourselves not to return. Kids play area is well secured but with only one set of slides for all the kids set up in the baking sun I wouldn't recommend this as a friendly play... More
