Namo Tuscan Grill brings regional Italian cuisine to downtown Saigon, in a modern international setting. A good spot for some dressed up Italian on Pasteur St, by the Rex Hotel.

The Namo folks have two Italian restaurants in town - the food’s good in both (the other is an upscale pizzeria). This place, the newer of the two, has a better feel, in a better space.

The menu, as the name suggests is regional Italian, with a good mix of pastas, meat dishes and salads.

Pastas are well priced for a fancy downtown venue like this. Meat dishes are priced in line with similar high-end eateries around town. The quality is good.

The feel is fancy but casual. Diners convene around the bar or at tables looking out across busy Pasteur St. There’s an open kitchen at one end. The food's dependably tasty.

Staff are good too.

In addition to their two Italian restaurants, the people behind Namo also own L'Usine cafes.

We've become regulars at Namo as it's nearby our place on Pasteur St - The Old Compass Cafe.

Namo Tuscan Grill does not use single use plastic straws, water bottles or plastic wrapped hand towels.

Rusty Compass reviews are always independent. We recommend the places we think you should know about. That’s it. We paid in full on both visits to Namo Tuscan Grill and no inducement of any kind was received for this recommendation.
