I love this place for its cozy-ness, and their pizza and pasta are top notch. Never fail to order their pizza everytime I visit this place. They have another branch in Damansara as well and both place are equally good in terms of food quality and service.

Good pasta and pizza. Fish is very good too. Dislike the steak- some came well done despite asking for medium rare. Exchanged for a new medium rare and its just the lowest of all grade beef. Very chewy and no it doesn't melt in the mouth, I would advise not to order their beef. Luckily we made a reservation- there's... More

One of the first restaurants we ate at. Nice selection of Italian food. Good wine selection. Attentive service and rather romantic atmosphere.

This is a well established and long time ago opened restaurant. We have been to this place many times . . . over the year. Everything here is Pico Bello + Molto Bene ... with a great ambiance. This is a MUST go restaurant in the Ampang Point Area - don't miss it.

Went there before but had to try it again. The service is good and efficient. The restaurant is nice, located on a small street behind Jalan Ampang. Sometime it is not easy to find parking space nearby only because there are lots of patrons driving to this area for there are quite a few restaurants in that street. We shared... More

The food is amazing, the wine is affordable, the atmosphere was cosy and nice. We ordered everything on the specials boards and I have not had anything like it. It was amazing. Each dish was a world of its own
