Discovered this gem of a restaurant on day 6 of 7, wish it was sooner. We started with the bruschetta and the caprese, delicious and fresh. We then followed on to main where I had the best seafood risotto that I have ever tasted, my husband had the spicy prawn penne pasta, which he gave a 10 out of 10.... More

Good service, nice sized meal. Above average for the island. We were part of a group who booked the whole restaurant, so the level of service and consistence of food was excellent.

5 star luxury at a 2 star price. THE BEST restaurant in Raro hands down. Beautiful handmade pasta by Carlo who comes out to greet his guests and tasty wines on offer including a selection of Italian ones. The chocolate fondant is to die for and I recommend the mushroom risotto with truffle oil- AMAZING!

The food here was amazing! We were part of a function with 50 or so dining with the set menu. I had the scallop and prawn entree, which was tasty and fresh! Over all an great meal!

We found it hard to find good food in Arorangi but we found this diamond in the rough. The food absolutely amazing. We loved the freshly made pasta and ate here the majority of our stay. The staff were so friendly and Carlos made the experience even more memorable. He often came out from the kitchen to great guests and... More

The best Italian food I've had since leaving Europe 12 yrs ago! Great setting and lovely staff. Seems a place for the over 50's though, not kids

Brillant restaurant. Had our wedding reception here and everything was faultless. Staff - outstanding. Food - marvellous. Atmosphere - fantastic. Pricing - very reasonable. You won't go home hungry! Thanks again Carlos, Moe and team. We will be back just like every time we visit Rarotonga!

I arrived at the Crown Beach dripping wet, having been caught in a downpour. Push bikes are a fantastic way to travel in Rarotonga but perhaps not the best conveyance on a rainy evening despite the jacket I was wearing! The lovely folk at the resort, having ascertained I was there for dinner and not just taking shelter, provided me... More

This restaurant is at the Crown resort on the western side of the island and wasn't far from the resort we were staying in. We ate there twice as the food was so good! The first time I had the pasta (very authentic) and the second time I had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly. We could see... More
