Definitely worth the money (around 500 to 800 per person). Pasta has just the right amount of tomato and salt. Perfect level of sourness and saltiness. Parking available at the back of the building or on street during 7pm onwards, there is also a parking building nearby.

Been dinning here quite a few times now. Small and quiet restaurant but they have a selection of good food. My favourite is Gamberi- 4pcs of king prawns cooked in garlic with potatoes and steamed veggies on the side. For dessert, I love their very rich chocolate ice cream.

Easy Italian Dining. Very good service and Cozy. There's also no corkage so you can enjoy your drinks with great food. Daily lunch is busy but dinners and weekends is a good time to get intimate.

I've visited this place for four times now since 2012, twice with friends and the other times with my husband. I love this place, the ambiance, the food, the staff. their Panini is my all-time favorite :) for those who have cars, it would be hard to park.
