My wife had chicken in mushroom cream sauce over linguine and I had lasagne. The lasagne was very salty ad the meat tasted old or of very low quality. The linguine sauce was mediocre and the chicken mushy and tasteless. A glass of " Italian Merlot" tasted like jug wine. The waitress seemed nice but confused several things on our... More

This restaurant was like a little touch of Europe in the Caribbean. Excellent, attentive service; choosing wine from their cellar was fun; the antipasto plate was Fabulous!! All of the food was excellent; the children had a play area in our direct view; we weren't rushed through dinner and thoroughly enjoyed this, our last evening on the island.

We have eaten here at least once or twice during each visit to St. Martin. Sometimes we have good food -- sometimes there are some opportunities. The last couple of visits have been quite good. This time we had a charcuterie platter that had some fabulous meat, cheese and veggie options on it. The homemade buns were an excellent accompaniment.... More

This was a random stop for us in St. Martin. If I had read the other reviews, I doubt we'd have gone to Little Italy, which would have been a shame. Our table (of 12) were all pleasantly surprised at the quality of service and food. The antipasti platter was a nice variety of Italian meats and cheeses. My wife... More

The food was good but a number of errors in the order. When confronting the service personnel, the arrogance often attributed to the French came through very genuienly. No appologies, acusing us for not being specific and finally very one off when it came the bill. These folks need a lesson or two on customer friendliness...

This place is very expensive for horrible service and mediocre food. Try local french cuisine instead. We were invited in by the owner himself while we were browsing the menu and decided to try it. Tried two order two standard cocktails and were told no because they were out of those standard ingredients (ginger ale and olives). Service was very... More

Worst restaurant and terrible owner. When it was time for our main meal my husbands meal arrived 30 minutes late. He was starving and half way through his chicken he looked at it to see that it was COMPLETELY RAW inside. Then when he told the owner he explained that it was actually our fault since we ordered the chicken... More

I brought my family here for dinner while on vacation. The service was extremely slow and about 25 minutes after my family received their meal my chicken appeared. I took two bites of the chicken and looked at it and it was completely RAW. yes... Raw. I've never in my life have eaten raw chicken. How hard is it to... More
