The restaurant, designed by Darryl Goveas, takes visual cues from rustic Italian interiors and mixes these with industrial elements, such as concrete walls and a tin ceiling, along with wood.

In addition, hand-sketched art and typography is scribbled across the restaurant’s walls, giving the space a sense of playfulness.
