We had lunch here invited by a friend who worked in the building. The foods quite good and service also good and attentive. Seems that this restaurant also considers the foods to be light and less calories, I don't know what others think, but I think this restaurant serves nice 'light' food if you're on diet.

We spent a long time trying to find the restaurant inside the UOB Plaza. For first comers it may be really tricky as we had to ask the way few times. It was close to our hotel, we wanted to lunch some Italian food and Pesto was the closest to us. The restaurant has a good selection of pizza, main... More

It's a nice Italian restaurant with easy access (very important specifically for Jakarta) with friendly service. reachable by TransJakarta, Bus stop directly connected with the building (don't worry for the sun or rain) sufficient parking area. discounts at Saturday evenings and good Italian food.

Pesto is located in the heart of central Jakarta, tuck in UOB Building at the Upper Level. I wouldn't know this place if I was not brought here. On Saturdays it's 50% discount from the menu. The ranges of the food selection is fabulous except one set back. Wines are served only in bottle form and not by glass. The... More

Nice place to fill our hungry tummies after church time. We love the spaghetti al cortoccio di mare. And the bacalla alla pesto is so perfect. Yummy food with great service. Thank you Lord for the food we have today.

We stayed at the Hyatt nearby and the concierge recommended Pesto as a good Italian restaurant, so we gave it a try. we ordered two pasta, Spaghetti Lobster and Spaghetti Anatra, rucola e grana, both were 'al dente' and very well blended. One pizza for the kids, crispy and tasty, porchetta as main course to share, juicy and perfectly cooked.... More
