Very nice location, from the design you can feel to be in Italy. Good food, good service and ordinary selection of Italian wine. I tried pasta with pesto rucola and salmons it was not really exceptional. Nevertheless I'll visit again.

We thought that due to the proximity to two behemoths like the UN and the US Embassy, this restaurant would be at the top of its game...we were mistaken. It is tired and not original. There is so much that can be done with Italian food...but this one drags on older recipes. Too bad. We tried it twice, and twice... More

Nice and quiet garden restaurant on busy UN Avenue. We wanted to like it but after three visits we have to admit to ourselves that the food is just not keeping up with the expectations raised by decor, attitude and prices. Service tends to be slow, too.

Since our office has relocated to Gigiri with my friends and colleagues, have frequented the restaurant quiet a few times for lunch. The ambience is pleasant and having tables also in the garden allows for a relaxing lunch. The food is excellent and the waiters efficient and polite. I can certainly recommend. Halina

This is the perfect place for long lunches. I have visited the restaurant regularly when in the Gigiri area. I specially like the variation of food and the specials that change frequently. Service is perfect. Its a very relaxing place with ample parking.
