The food was excellent, let's face it, that is what dining out is first all about. The ambience, the service was really incredible. This is really an excellent dining experience overall. We will be returning often now that we've discovered this spot. Menau selection was excellent and broad. Absolutely worth it.!!!!

Was very skeptical about this place because the menus I could find were written on a chalk board. However I was pleasantly surprised. Great customer service but most of all the food was amazing. Not sure how to describe but the seafood tasted like they just caught it. Definitely try this place. You will not regret it.

Other than the appetizer, the food was incredibly bland. The spaghetti sauce tasted like chef boyardee, the fish was tasteless. The shrimp appetizer was excellent. Setting is lovely and the owner was warm and gracious

Their fresh daily menu consists of homemade pastas, slow cooked beef, organic veggies and mouthwatering desserts. The owner, Leila, makes you feel right at home and can tell you anything you need to know about the menu. She'll make sure you find your perfect dish. You won't leave disappointed. The ambiance is quaint and cute - a great spot for... More

Our group was a mixture of locals and visitors, one vegan and one minor on Christmas eve. The menu looked intimidating but once Lella came over and explained it to us we owned it and started making our choices. I tweaked my seafood pasta dish to nix the shrimp.--was pleasantly surprised when Lella promised they'd ramp up the lobster to... More

Dinner at 6:30 p.m., frogs and crickets create music while the chef creates his magic. Attentive owner takes the time to explain the menu to each diner. Water served continuously. Fresh foccaccio bread with a herb garlic butter to die for. Homemade fettuccini was delicious. Best dining experience by far on the North Coast of Jamaica. Mark & Ellen S.

We wouldn't usually go for Italian when there are so many yummy Jamaican options, but this place was highly rated and in walking distance of our hotel. Best pasta we have ever had! Enjoyed lobster, marlin, rabbit and even had dessert! All well worth the price, the owner is on site and lovely and the service was excellent! You will... More

We had apps first: marlin, escargots and tuna tartare were to die for. We all (party of 6) had some kind of lobster, I did the thermadore and I loved it! Daily menu by the Italian born, raised in England, chef was very impressive and mouth watering. He spent time with each of us discussing our preferences and the wines.... More
