Mr Ali said restaurant has gained a big success with the idea originated from his elder brother and businessman, Ahmed Ali, who resides in the United Kingdom.

“This is our sub-branch of our Italian Restaurant in London and it was decided that we need to open one here in Fiji back in 2008,” he said.

Mr Ali said since the establishment eight years ago the eatery has grown bigger and better.

The restaurant has two Italian Chefs, Stefano Aprea and head chef, Enzo Maione.

“We are happy to have our restaurant here.
