    Baked aubergine was delicious! Seafood pasta and the salmon + turkey pizza was good :) Would come again for the aubergine :p Drinks are pricey! Very dim lighting. Bad for taking pics :(

    My second visit here and was not disappointed. Their dessert is a must have. Panna cotta!! Advisable to make reservations on the weekends.

    The panna cotta is sooo good. Mains are okay, I've only tried the gnocchi and barramundi, tastes good but portions are small if you're a big eater.

    Food is generally good here n not too pricey. Only problem we had was air-cond wasn't performing full capacity. Ocassionally stuffy.

    The mixed seafood pasta was great, like the one we had in Milan. The matching wine, can't remember the name though(in Italian you know), is equally good. Had a great night out with the gals.

    Food is good and service is fab (if not a bit over-enthusiastic) but parking is horrendous!!! Evenings are worse!

    OMG. I love the food here. Pizza frutti de mare and pasta alla risata. Enjoyed every bite. Well, maybe I was just too hungry.

  • Denis D.

    Salads are very big and good, great pumpkin soup. Coffee is however very average, and pizza dough is wrong - it's sweet, tastes like crackers.

    The pizza was nothing special and the scaloppine was almost raw. Very much overrated.

    The free bread you get is lousy even though it's warm. But it's cheap white baguette bread
