This place is a real gem. Lovely courtyard setting, well spaced tables, courteous and attentive service. We shared some bruschetta and I followed with a splendid tagliatelle with sardines. The range of pastas was especially notable. Decent Indian wines available.

My friend took me to this place and I was so happy she did. The food and service was simply outstanding. The setting and atmosphere was beautiful and I will be back for sure when I am back in Goa!
Thank you to all the staff

I've not had a three course meal for a long time and one look at the menu made up my mind! Possibly some of the best Italian food I've ever had, yes it was a little bit more expensive but what you get for your money more than makes up for it!

I was a little disappointed with my visit to this restaurant this time. The waiters attitude seemed arrogant and not really interested in their job . The service was indifferent. The food was definitely not up to the mark. They charged for the bread which was served at the beginning of the meal which is always served complementary . They serve only a choice of Indian wines which in my personal opinion aren't very good. The biggest turn off is that they don't accept credit cards. I think they should be shut down for that. I'm sorry if that souns harsh but in this day and age you must accept some form of electronic payment unless you want to deliberately fly under the radar. Especially since we have just gone through a demonetization process and cash is still a little hard to come by. This will probably be my last visit to this restaurant.

Talk about delicious, authentic, and traditional Italian food in Goa. How do they do it? Honestly speaking, I didn't hold out much expectation wise when it came to finding authentic Italian food in Goa, much less anywhere in India! This restaurant was within feet of my hotel (Casa Anjuna), and as soon as you walked inside, I felt transported back to Italy.
One draw back - the wine! It's okay, not great. But, really, who cares! The food steals the show here.
Be sure to visit this beautiful Italian Restaurant.
