The restaurant is located near the lake in downtown Hanoi but was not overly busy when we arrived for lunch. We all ordered the pizza and it was delicious. Not baked in a Forno but nevertheless it was excellent. The service was good and reasonably prompt. Prices were fair and we would return.

We wanted so much some good pastas for our dinner. As a young travelling couple, we decided to break our dinner budget and go there. This restaurant looks like having very high standards, good impression. But it was just an impression. After ordering our small Diavola pizza and ravioli with spinach and cream, we had to wait more than half... More

We ate at this restaurant mainly because our young children were keen to have a break from eating Vietnamese food. Pizzas were tasty, service was reasonable. Was more expensive than eating local food but that was to be expected. Located in a prominent position close to the lake in the centre of Hanoi.

Lasagna was so bad it was watery and had egg shells mixed with the beef. The onion soup was pale and did not have salt or any flavor at all. The four cheese pizza was at par.

Just really boring food. I had a Four season pizza, and everything had no flavor at all. I wouldn't recommend this place.

The staff was friendly but the food was really bad. We got different pizzas and they tasted like dough - no spices, no salt, nothing!! We were starving so we ate the food, otherwise we would just have left. I would never go there again or recommend it to others.

We ate here on our last night in Hanoi. Picked it for the views. It has lovely views, alhough all tables are inside, from the window I could see other places that had great views and outside seating. They have live Vietnamese music playing which is lovely to hear. The menu was extensive and you had 2 choices of a... More

We went to this restaurant as a reward to our young children for trying lots of Vietnamese food over the pervious few days - pizza! They were not disappointed. Pizza was very edible, yes as others have mentioned the breadsticks at the start were not good, but the drinks were cold and service friendly.

Whatever you do : Do NOT order the Gnocchi w Bolognese, its bland and prob most boring dish we had in Vietnam. Pizza was mediocre as best. No other costumers in restaurant so attentive staff. I Wonder how a restaurant like this survive - Chef cannot be italian or he should be ashamed
