Located along the Singapore river, this little Italian gem is absolutely worth the visit! Chef Francesco is very skillful, and also takes very good care of my wife and her allergies. Food is amazing, excellent wines, on the riverfront, all at affordable pricing. Absolutely recommended!

Friendly, efficient and attentive service. Centrally located with beautiful views across the river. Varied but not too extensive menu. Nicely prepared tasty food. Reasonable prices.

Excellent and delightful venue next to the Singapore river. Friendly staff providing attentive service. Food arrived quickly hot to the table. Would patronise the restaurant again.

Location carina direttamente sul Singapore river. Buon cibo, anche se i calamari erano un po' duri..pizza buona come in Italia!!

Thoroughly recommend the pizzas - crisp tasty dough, good tomato base and good ingredients generally. Staff are energetic helpful and the service altogether is very good. Authentically and delightfully Italian. Bene!

Not welcoming, service perfunctory and disinterested. Food ordinary. I just cannot think of anything overwhelmingly positive to say about the experience. It was not bad, just not good.
