Great place for a cool Sunday lunch. The place had open areas, trees, with islands of sheltered tables. Since it is on the Tiruvanmiyur sea shore, you get seabreeze as well. Pizzas are delicious. The staff are very courteous. Enjoyed the visit. Recommended.

The food and wine are way overpriced for the ambience and taste . The restaurant has options of seating inside as well as open air in the backyard. The chair and table were of moderate quality. The only good thing about the restaurant is that it is 100mts from the sea beach. Also the ditance is far from the central... More

Visited the restaurant a couple of months as part of a team outing. The restaurant is nestled inside a peaceful neighborhood overlooking the Kottivakkam beach and is just perfect if looking for a calm and tranquil ambiance. The restaurant is run by an Italian couple out of their residential property who doubles as hosts and make every effort to make... More

Great ambience, complete with garden and beach. Even better pizza. Amazing thin-crust pizzas. I did have only Veg one, but friends liked Non-veg ones too. And they have lots of options. Great during winter months, other seasons open air sitting maybe uncomfortable even during nights. Beach is just 50Mts, if you like a stroll after dinner. They do not serve... More

Had been there with family and found the place to be simply awesome.. Though a little dark, the tables are well lit and the music is also likable.. The food and drink options are not very much. We had some crostini and pizza.. While the pizza was very good, I felt the breads and crostini could have been a little... More

Even Italians will drool over the food here, I am sure. A very cosy place away from the humdrum of the city but on the beach, I can take a bet that they don't have a single non repeat customer. The service is equally good and makes you feel royal and the food is a delight.
