I was impressed by its history and truly Italian ambiance. Everything is simply stunning, small, cozy restaurant with superb decoration. I had homemade pasta with porcini mushroom and pizza top with 4 cheese types, really love that. Great staff and service! I'll definitely come back again.

I used to frequent this restaurant since... 20 years which decoration remains unchanged (thanks for that; it is so well done). The atmosphere and soft Italian music are really cosy. There is a great choice of Italian wines and the Wine list specifies alcohol degrees which is so helpful when you hesitate with a delicious Valpollicella. I always come back... More

I visited here for the first time in 6 years. I used to have Fungi Porcini Taliatelle or Fettucine (sorry I forgot) and Tiramisu. Still great. But full of Japanese Businessman! Highly recommend especially to those who lives in Hanoi ;) ハノイの老舗イタリアン。久々に訪問しました。大好きで良く頼んでいたフンギポルチーニのタリアテッレorフェットチーネ、ティラミス共に変わらず美味しかったです。ハノイ在住日本人に大人気なので、いつ行っても日本人で一杯ですが。観光客向けというより、在住者向けでしょうか。

One of the best place for Italian food and pizza in Hanoi, especially for those who are living around Hai Ba Trung or Hoan Kiem District. We got pizza 4 cheeses and some more here and it was just perfect! Strongly recommended for anyone looking for a nice Western dining experience here in Hanoi! ❤

IF you go there alone, you will think the restaurant is very expensive. BUT with your girlfriend or your family, you will feel very happy with the atmosphere, good interior and comfortable staffs. Foods are very nice.

The restaurant has been there for 20 years with same style, decoration and atmosphere of old town house of Hanoi in mid 1950s. It's small but cosy and offers a good wine list. The foods are great, speacially the black squid ink spagheti and carpaccio which I think the best in town! You should not also skip the dessert with... More

...or your kids are screaming for Italian food after a little "Phở overdose", this place is a good option for finding European food in Hanoi, even with a surprisingly genuine atmosphere. Only the seating is far from comfortable, since they use tree trunks to support the table. It was hard to find enough space for the feet.
