Last month, I heard about this newly opened restaurant claiming to serve authentic Italian cuisine and I decided to try it. When we entered the restaurant on one Sunday afternoon for a very early dinner, the restaurant was empty, but I love the interior instantly. It feels like we’re not entering a restaurant in an office building but in a small cafe in Italy 🙂 The ambience was warm and cozy, with a very friendly service.
After being seated, we scanned the menu and found various selection from antipasti, contorni e insalata, zuppa, primi piatti, secondi piatti and pizza. So we picked pizza quatro formaggi – normal size (tomato sauce, pecorino, parmesan, ricotta and mozzarella) 25K and cannelloni al forno 40K. but instead of using cheese and tomato sauce, I asked them if they can make it using pesto sauce and they said OK. For dessert we choose souffle al ciocollato (chocolate souffle) 25K. Overall the meal was not bad, the pizza was OK, but my pesto sauce lacked pine nuts, and when we tried the souffle, it was rather sweet. When we asked, they said they were using milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. They thought we will prefer it sweet rather than a bit bitter.
