Just like its name, the restaurant is literally located at the back of a small alleyway in Ampang. Everything on the menu is handmade, including the pasta. The crowd-favourite is their Squid Ink Tagliolini Carbonara. They also serve other Italian dishes like Charred Cauliflower with Pesto Diavolo and Pecorino Romano.

Though the menu may seem a bit limited, all their food is finessed to perfection to give you a taste of authentic Italian cuisine. They also like to introduce a lot of special menus that will only be available from time to time which certainly makes it interesting!

The intimate interior of this restaurant can only serve about eight diners at a time and it’s a must to make a reservation beforehand. However, you might need to book as early as two months prior.

Operating hours: 5.30PM-10PM (closed on Mondays)

Their best-sellers include The Fish on a Rocket (pasta with pomo-cream sauce and house-smoked salmon), Holly Molly (pasta with 7-hour slow-cooked beef) and Matcha-Made in Atlantis (matcha-infused spaghetti with pesto sauce and seafood).

Some of the most-raved about pastas include their Fettuccine Al Porcini (pasta ribbons with porcini mushrooms, truffle paste and Roman pecorino) and Rigatoni Alla Norcin (tube pasta with minced lamb and button mushroom). Apart from that, you should also try their Truffle Pizza which is known to have very generous toppings and Seafood Risotto which is said to be amazingly flavourful.
