Everything I've tasted on the menu has been delicious. It is relatively pricier but worth a try. You'll definitely be back for more.

Authentic, Italian food better than most Fine dining Italian restaurants. Great personalised service, food so good, you don't mind the unassuming interiors. Every time we are in Kochi, its a must do.
