The food was good, I had the Pasta Carbonara and Chapman drink. I also requested it spicy, it was just the right amount of spicy as opposed t o an overpowering pepper taste. I would go back again if I am back in Abuja.

This is an Italian restaurant located at an accessible part of Wuse 2 District,Abuja. It was a little difficult locating the restaurant as we have to pass it twice on our way. The food was very delicious and the pizza excellent. I had a glass of Italian wine which completed the fun. My kids also found the restaurant interesting. The... More

This is a restaurant I will gladly visit anytime. The food was very good and more than enough of it! You will not leave this restaurant feeling a bit dissatisfied with what you got. The wine was also good

This restaurant has a nice vibe to it. I can really recommend their pizza and pasta. The eggplant with tomato as a starter is very tasty. Service is not bad at all. We would definitely go there again.

I got treated to a birthday dinner which turned out to be a not so great experience. Most of the items on the menu were not available. We had to compromise on our choices, that didn't necessarily dampen the spirit. However the waiting time for the food after order was horrendous; oven grilled chicken was ordered which took almost an... More

Yes, they don't always have everything on their card, BUT for us, they always had a perfect alternative! (They also suffer with the import regulations) Waiting time is short (and each minute is worth it!) Prices are very resonable. Ambiente is very calm and gives chance to sneak out of this enviroment. We jump in shortly for lunch and spend... More

As an Italian restaurant I was very excited to have a meal there. However it was a bit disappointing because despite good presentation and service, I personally found the food to be bland. I have not returned there since.

Not a lot of international restaurant in Abuja. But this one is Italian. And it has an italian chef too. Secondly there are lebanese partners too. Which may be the reason for an italian decor. Visited on a weekday evening. Didn't find it to be crowded. Food was reasonable. Ordered lasagna which the local nigerians suggested was good. Though Ive... More
