We met the Nepalise brothers who worked there. They are very friendly and hospitable and one of them showed us to the rooftop view. The hotel is a beautiful place, well-decorated, but it took us quite a while to find it. We had dinner there. The food is quite affordable considering it's a very nice place to eat. The steak...

When we came to the place it was all dark because of the powercuts. But we was met by the very friendly staff who fast lid the candlelight and made it very cosy. We both chose spaghetti and were very positively surprised. The pasta was very good and cooked al dente and with a delicious tomatosauce. In theese times in... More

The hotel provided us with local cuisine and hearty breakfasts every day. They also made us a fantastic lasagna on our last night in Bhaktapur. The food was always fantastic and we all fell in love with the green chili sauce!

We are here with our 3 year old twins sitting in a beautiful garden. The staf is very very friendly and helpful. They are very childfriendly.

I popped in here most mornings in Kathmandu because it provided the most consistently good coffee. The food is main fare and good. It's also a good place to rest up if shopping in Thamel.

Very average food (not bad, but nothing really special). Probably, we just expected too much from the place run by Italian and being ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. The prices are on the high side (mains ab Rs400 + tax). Nice interior and garden inside the restaurant. Located outside of the old town (800m from the town's gate as measured by... More

We decided to walk the kilometer out of town (not a scenic walk by any stretch of the imagination) in the hope of sampling authentic Italian food. We were disappointed to be served the same old "Italian" that's served everywhere in Nepal - doughy bland pizza and pasta smothered in a pile of cheese, without real sauce or taste. This... More

Great food in a beautiful setting. The restaurant is in the best hotel in Bhaktapur. The food, always great, has gotten better with the help of an italian shelf expanding the menu and teaching new dishes to the staff. Beautiful garden to dine, weather permitting.
