There is a famous ice cream restaurant in Central Jakarta-Indonesia called 'Ragusa'. The restaurant was founded in 1932 by the two Italian brothers Vizenzo Ragusa and Luigi Ragusa. They gave the business to their trusted partners when they decided to go back to Italy. The owner left the restaurant as it was first built with old pictures people mingling, dancing while enjoying ice cream. Eventually, some will meet their true love. Till now many young couples like to go their for a date. There are two popular dishes on the menu: Spaghetti Ice Cream and Cassata Italiana.
