I went there thrice. First because of gelato, then i fell in love with pasta & spaghettis. They serve Halaal food there, is mostly full of people and they have a premium over in-house dining 5-10rupees higher for inhouse dining. However their wifi, quality of food & service makes it worth it. The owner lady is very helpful, multi lingual and on her feet to help you choose the best dish according to availability. Their tiramisu was also worth mentioning. I tried their beef spaghetti, beaf lasagne both of which were good, but spaghetti won due to its serving size :) They have a spice "chatni", which can make your food, as spicy as you want. It adds an interesting ting to the food. The food pricing was mid range & not cheap. But they accept both local & foreign currency. |Credit cards are not accepted, so prepare accordingly. They don't serve dinner, so visit them before 5pm.

If you like my review, hit "helpful" and let me know what info is missing in here, which could've helped you better.

Stumbled on this restaurant while walking the streets and doing a bit of last minute shopping - wish we had found it earlier as the food was delicious, desert amazing and the service cheerful. Definitely recommended.

Fully honestly, I have not visited this restaurant, but I can witness personally on the quality and unique taste of ice creams. The wife of the owner descends from a legendary family of ice cream makers in a little town on the bottom of Vesuvius, Portici. She has inherited the passion and the rigor in selecting only the best ingredients and treating each single taste as her own little baby. Knowing her since teenager time, I can ensure she still retains the passion which enabled Gallo family to be still the best ice cream makers in South Italy. You will not regret the experience.

After having trudged around Victoria and becoming increasingly with the guide book map, we happened upon this place, which we'd been looking for earlier. Upon entering the restaurant it was cool and calm and we were greeted with friendly enthusiasm. Ever member of staff that we came into contact was kind and considerate, suggesting suitable food for our children and ourselves. The food was honestly sold, home made and excellent. The ice creams were fantastic too! We would definitely go back!

My favourite place in Victoria for gelato and pastries and not to mention the Club sandwich! The service is good and the staff are the friendliest. Lovely setting to meet up with close friends and loved ones.
