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

Went many times, we stay close to this restaurant . Food is ok and not bad . Food never come in one go for every one rather it comes in different time so never could start food all together. The most annoying thing is if you ask for plain ice water they seriously sell quite costly bottle water. Do not... More

This pizza is a combination of 4 different types on a long piece, not the best though. I much prefer the other 2 'normal' pizzas we had. I like the restaurant ambience. The friendly staff makes...

The ambiance, food and drink are superb and all at a decent price too. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed their Pizza POLPETTE D'AGNELLO, their deserts are a must try as well and I loved the way they make their Mexican coffee... I will definitely be dining there again soon.
