This was a really nice Italian restaurant ran by a delightful Italian Chef. The food was excellent and the Chef brought the food to our table and explained how each dish was prepared. Nice setting and I really cannot wait to go back and have some more of this rather delicious food. Our wine was corked but it was expertly... More

Food was FANTASTIC...The ingredients were fresh which added lots of flavour and you felt that homely vibe because the chef/owner personally came out and chatted and told you about the food and even gave us tastes of what he was trying. I would definitely eat here on my next trip to Tobago.

Just came back from this little restaurant, wow! The food is excellent, the owner and bartender both spent time talking to us, making you feel right at home. The pumpkin and grilled shrimp soup was superb. Overall the food is excellent, prices not too expensive and great ambiance. Only disappointment is that they only open for dinner - no breakfast...

Great Italian cooking, huge selection of wines (probably best on island). I ve heard You need a reservation, therefore I was able to walk in, just had to wait for table (like 15 mins). Cool spot for a date or romantic dinner.

I was in Tobago a year or so ago and had one of the finest meals at La Tartaruga. This was my 2nd time at the restaurant. It so happened that power to that part of the island was out and we wondered where we could get a meal, thinking that the restaurant would be closed. The owner, Gabriele, invited... More

Most of the restaurants baring the Pavilion at Stonehaven were very good on Tobago. This one however shone like a star. Gorgeous setting, family run with a passion. Excellent food served by the chef with little extras and so background of the food you were served. Just try it.

My girlfriend and I have eaten all over Tobago in the last two weeks. Unfortunately we didn't discover this place until the last few days. The service started out slow and we were expecting typical Tobagonian service. But this was quickly redeemed with a friendly and attentive waiter. Portions were a fair size and very tasty. The price was reasonable... More
