    3 girls at the front but still could not do a decent job, no smiles at all. Courses was not served together as a table. Food was decent but I've had better so really dunno where the 3 stars come from.

    Ignore the fact they it is expensive, hard to book and full with flashy douchebags. Just enjoy the really good food. Not as good during lunch.

    Milanese cottolette (veal) is the best, can't leave without having this. Bombana is famous for his risotto, ruffle, pasta- everything as he picks best & fresh ingredients. 8 1/2 Macau just opened!

    Tried the tasting menu but the taste of dishes didn't have a wow factor.. Amazing steak sirloin though! Crispy on the outer. Cooked just right. The sauce won't takeover the fresh juicy taste of steak.

    Best Italian restaurant and is less pricey than hotel restaurants (probably because it's located inside a business building rather than a hotel)

    The sea bass was rather bland and the lobster tagliatelle was underwhelming. Overall a very unspectacular experience. Rather disappointing.

    Look out for their white truffle menu in the winter. Absolutely to die for. The trio chocolate desert is also a killer. Be prepared to make resv well in advance as it gets fully booked all the time.
