We ate the appitizer sampler, pumpkin soup, which was bland for my taste, and the Mahi Mahi, delicious yet a little too highly spiced, again this is a personal view point. Others may find the seasoning just right. The food and service were very good, the wine list excellent. We had an enjoyable evening.

When I was there, I ordered Ravioli. I received 3 very small ravioli on my plate; then went home and made myself a cheese sandwich because I was still hungry. Very expensive!

This was a great little Italian restaurant in Buccoo. The staff was great and the prices were fair. We had a great time and enjoyed everything we ordered. They are not open on Sundays because of Sunday School. Look them up online, check out the menu, then go.

Authentic Italian cuisine. Great service and atmosphere. Shrimp Alfredo was to die for. Better food than many more expensive restaurants in Tobago and certainly better than most Italian restaurants in the UK. Best Italian dining experience I've had outside of Tuscany.

We are big travellers to Italy so very interested to see if this was a 'real' Italian restaurant. We got chatting to the charming staff and they were from Venice & Milan so knew food would be authentic. It was sensational - the mixed starter was out of this world and the fresh pasta main was to die for. Not... More

We visit Tobago regularly but this was our first visit to La Tartaruga in Bucoo. We were a party of 8 including 3 children and we were made extremely welcome. In fact, our youngest diner (8 years old) was personally taken care of by the exceptionally friendly chef/owner who made sure he was able to find something to his liking... More

We had a lovely evening at La Tartaruga. The food is great, the wine list even better! The owners is very friendly and the service was excellent. Definitely one of the better places to eat on Tobago.

The best Italian food in T&T. I was blown away by the lasagne , the most familiar thing on the menu.The meal was propelled to stratospheric heights by the delightful choclate dessert.A "must" visit for any tobago visitor.

A little skeptical about visiting this restaurant, I hopped on board with the rest of my family at the last minute. Boy oh boy am I glad I did! The authentic Italian food with an equally authentic Italian chef (also the owner of the establishment) paired with the carribean ambience was all we needed for a fantastic and fulfilling evening!...
