We enjoyed wine, salad and pasta dishes - all were delicious. Food arrived quickly and in generous portions. This is a favourite spot for their pasta and wine options, but the menu is extensive for those wanting other Italian main courses or pizzas. The seating...More

Food is just fine (maybe because I had the business lunch menu) and can be a nice change for those who needs a break from local dishes. The restaurant is not very well decorated, but service is fine.

Walter, the chef is an institution of Bishkek now. Italian food is as good as it can be in Central Asia. Cozy atmosphere, good prices and services. My tip is gnocchi and Tagliata...

I've been to both the old and new locations, and so here's the breakdown on both. Old: -building/atmosphere: comfortable and clean. The small size of the restaurant gave it a secluded, homely feeling. The only downside was the lack of proper smoking/non-smoking sector division. -service:...More

Excellent restaurant, with pleasant atmosphere and comfortable couch-like seats. Great Italian food with rich menu. Excellent service by English speaking waiters. Fantastic Espresso. Very reasonable prices compared to the quality. Business lunch with cheap, yet very good options.

We ordered ravoili and pizza. Was still hungry after the ravoili which was disappointing considering it was 340 +15%. Pizza seemed better value. Food tasted good. Restaurant is very big not much atmosphere.
