Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We could not fault our dinner tonight. From start to finish it was excellent. From the tastings of Ciabatta with balsamic and olive oil to our Bruschetta entrees and mains of Eggplant pie or Ravioli that my wife enjoyed a lot it was all as...we say in Australia spot on. So much so a return tomorrow night before we leave Nha Trang is indeed¹ a possibility. To the team in the kitchen to the table service you all are to be complimented. In closing thanks for the Lemoncello offer but we do not consume alcohol.More

This restaurant is hidden down a very narrow alleyway of one of the main streets in the centre of Nga Trang. We found it from Trip Advisor/Google Maps. When we arrived it was full but after only a couple of minutes we got a table...and had one of the best meals of our trip. As other reviews have said the bruschetta was a massive portion, more than enough to share and each piece different, I had a lobster ravioli and my partner a pasta with lamb ragout, we finished with tiramisu, all of which was excellent, we were then given homemade limoncello on the house - which was far better than the one I make! Unfortunately this was our last night in Nha Trang or we would have eaten there again.More

This is a fabulous, clean, bright and relaxing restaurant. Medium sized with 2 floors of outdoor seating as well as a small air-conditioned room on the second floor. Ordered the 4 cheese pizza I added fresh garlic and basil) and it was FRESH and delicious....The mix of cheeses was evident in every mouthful and the crust was crunchy on the bottom and soft and chewy underneath the proportional layer of cheese. The staff were all pleasant, attentive and relaxed. I highly recommend enjoying a meal - at least the pizza - here.More

One of the best Italian restaurant in Vietnam, thanks to a true Italian menu. Great pizza and home made breads. It is a little gem as it’s like eating in Italy but abroad. The ambiance is really nice and you feel for a while like...being in a traditional seaside restaurant in Capri. The Italian owner always checks that all is done properly and in the traditional way. If you don’t like al dente pasta, beside being sorry for you, you will have to ask to overcook it.More

Nothing wow about this place! It’s a restaurant serving Italian food! Nothing that really impressed me here! The Negroni tasted awful! Tuna tartare lacked any kind of seasoning! Breads were forgotten to be served and when asked for were served ice cold! May be will...give this place another chance!More

From the moment we stepped foot into this restaurant, our high hopes for an enjoyable dining experience were quickly dashed. Despite our initial excitement, we were met with a lot of disappointments that left us feeling disrespected and frustrated. Firstly, the host's inappropriate and insensitive...joke directed at me in the presence of my boyfriend was utterly uncalled for and completely unprofessional. It's incomprehensible how such behavior could be deemed acceptable when welcoming guests. Furthermore, the quality of the food failed to impress. The lasagna, in particular, lacked any semblance of flavor or appeal, leaving much to be desired. Additionally, the evident disparities in treatment based on cultural background and gender are unacceptable. There should be no room for discrimination or differential treatment in any establishment, especially not in a supposedly reputable restaurant. They should learn to respect Vietnamese customer as Western! Overall, our experience at this restaurant was marred by unprofessionalism and rudeness from start to finish. It's a shame to see such potential wasted by a lack of regard for customer satisfaction and basic decency. We certainly won't be returning, nor can we recommend it to others.More

Lovely ambience especially if sitting outdoors, friendly staff and good food. Being a vegetarian, there were options for us that met our dietary needs. Complimentary bread served once seated and all the essential condiments ie balsamic vinegar, chilli oil, olive oil, salt , pepper and...chilli flakes are on each table. We Ordered bruschetta and each of the four pieces of bread was topped with different vegetable and was flavourful and delicious. The spinach and ricotta ravioli was well filled with a thin pastry and cooked in a tasty tomato sauce, the eggplant pie / parmigiana was delicious. Good selection of wines and drinks to accompany the meal. Complimentary limoncello served to finish off the meal. Definitely worth a visit if you fancy a change from Vietnamese food.More

Best Italian we’ve been at in Asia 10000%. Quite possibly the best in Europe too. Italian owned, proper pizzas, generous portions, nice drinks. Will be back again before we leave Nha Trang!

The best Italian restaurant I've seen in my East Asia travels, true to it's cuisine with extremely kind owners and staff. Perfect if you want a taste of Italy while far from home. Don't forget to check out La Bottega 26 nearby, their café.

Exceptional… do not miss this while in Nha Trang. The food, the wine, the service and the ambience just perfect. My only complaint was they ran out of tiramisu because it is so good!

I had an amazing night: I was solo, but then found friendly people from next tables. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the waiters very kind! Thanks also to the amazing oven they have, the pizza was delicious (and I’m Italian!!). Definitely suggested, a must...go if you are looking for a eating-place to remember in Nha Trang!More

This place just feels very welcoming. The setting is very reminiscent of a Mediterranean house, and the owner is always there in the evening - welcoming guests and making sure everyone is having a great time. Obviously, it is also a very proper Italian restaurant.
