If I had been here I month ago, I would have probably ranked 1. Now management has changed again, and I tried with some colleagues sometimes for lunch break. Food is not bad, but service badly slow.

Great buffet with tasty food and speedy service which is unusual for Luanda. For a work lunch is one of the best choices in the area.

Less than average pizza, poor service, didn't have cold water, the place in itself is not bad but could use a better management.

Friendly service. Food very average. OK if you are hungry! Location pleasant and you can sit outside but there are plenty of alternatives to try.

The quality of the food and prices may be acceptable, to be in Luanda. But since the italian management left, the situation got worse. The pizzas are still acceptable but there are better ones, even in Luanda. The meat and generally the prato do dia are not bad. But be ready to wait a random and sometime unacceptable amount of...

Delectable menu. Could have done better with the ambience. Almost always crowded. Good part is, that they take reservations!

Don Castellana offers authentic Italian food, with a good choice of different options, ranging from pasta to pizza to meat. Make sure you have a second choice in mind when you order as they often don't have every item on the menu available. Good wine choice.

Reasonable prices for Luanda combined with good, friendly service earn this place 4/5 from me. The Brasilana pizza was great and wine my the glass went well with it. The staff are efficient and friendly and better than most of Luanda's crazy priced places. Being out on the terrace is great to soak up the local (good) vibe but if... More
