A lovely Italian restaurant with the ability to seat large groups. Delicious food, nice atmosphere. In fact, if I were with a smaller group I would have loved to be seated outdoors. Quite popular with the tourist crowd.

I enjoyed the pizza but also the meat. I would recommend this restaurant even to Italians. It is possible to sit outside.

A good place to go with friends or family (not so small kids because doesn't have places to play). But it's very fast and efficient service.

My fellow Italian food lovers, this is the must visit restaurant in Lilongwe - the capital city of Malawi. Can't tell you much but go here and witness the specialists in Italian foods.
