REALLY good food. We found this place by accident when visiting the Souq and looking for somewhere for dinner. Excellent home made style food. Lasagne excellent and the deserts are fantastic. Overall price was fair but deserts were too expensive compared to mains. I would definitely go back tho. Friendly with great service and great food !

The owner's refusal to tamper with any of the dishes or to customize an order, as she has told me, is proof of authenticity for this Italian restaurant. It really manages to capture the beauty and simplicity of an Italian restaurant, devoid of unnecessary luxury you often find in the Gulf. And it somehow fits well with the Souq Waqif... More

Who fancies Italian food that is not adapted to Arab taste will be happy with what this intimate and nice restaurant has to offer. From starter through pasta to main, and the gelato and espresso afterwards, everything was of excellent quality and taste, nicely decorated and professionally served. The waitress introduced the dishes of the day not to be found... More

We tried Risotto Funghi, Sea Food Canelloni, Small Octopus Linguini, Tiramisu and Ice Cream and everything was tasteful, fresh and very italian - definitely above average. We just came back from Italy and this place is the closest to what we tasted there. Tiramisu is a must have! The portions are pretty big so it would be good to share... More

This restaurant is one of the best Italian restaurants in here after papermoon and la spiga. They have real Italian cuisine and whenever I come here I don't regret.
