This restaurant has closed down. In it's place is a Mexican themed restaurant called Johnny Jalepenjo's which is still getting "On its feet" and has mixed reviews so far on facebook.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Flexible with children. Very casual atmosphere and upbeat staff. Good meal for reasonable prices! If you are looking for casual dining and a relaxed atmosphere with pleasant staff and good food--this it it! Enjoy!

Serves mainly good Italian style food. For me this resturant is to noisy with the kitchen open to the eating area. The noise from the clattering plates and shouting chefs is not inducive to conversation.

If you are in a hurry and want a quick bite, go there. Atmosphere like sports cafe, humming with activities, be prepared to raise your voice for conversation. Food quality always constant, good value for money. Can recommend, but not for romantic outings.

The concept is nice. The menu pics are appealing but the food left a lot to be desired. And the waitstaff was only semi helpful after they were flagged down of course. We wont be back.

Decent and clean Italian restaurant located in a mall. Drinks and food were delivered within a reasonable amount of time. Would skip the desserts; the tiramisu and cheesecake were bad.
