Average service, limited offerings, mediocre food, cannot make up it's mind whether it's a restaurant or coffee shop. although we were the only customers, took an age to be served. our first 2 choices were not available. just had a coffee, very good, and left.

Please Georgians do yourselves a favour and have a meal at Imonelli - Alessandro does all the meals himself and in true Italian style. His pizza base is the best in town and I have not had better in Italy. Excellent all round.

Best pasta , really authentic Italian cuisine. The meatballs with pasta sauce were balanced perfectly with a hint of chilly and soft mozzarella cheese. Delizioso !!

Authentic Italian trattoria styled restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinners. Authentic Italian trained chef makes tradition Italian cuisine like mamma does. Come try our Spaghetti Bolognese, beef Lasagna, Spinach and ricotta cannelloni which are all traditional dishes that will have you coming back for more... Our thin based pizza's are also a must. Our Deli is stocked with imported items to tempt you which are all used in our menu... We make fresh homemade ravioli which can be pre ordered for that special occasion
