Great Italian Spot

We love the atmosphere, but sometimes the children screaming can ruin your meal. Wait staff seems to have a high turn over which we don't like, but the food it very tasty, large portions and usually leftovers.

This place is extremely slow, all the employees are rude! They do not clean up their messes! Leave dirty plates next to your table. Poor excuse for what should be a fine dinning experience! The food doesn't even taste authentic! Taste like it was made from a can!

The Salmon and pasta in a light butter and lemon sauce was outstanding. The serving size is generous and the salmon is grilled just right. The location is convenient with many shopping and eating places in the area.

Italiannis is just OK. The service was just OK and meals were a bit skimpy, and not particularly hot or well presented. Service was spotty and slow. We had been there a year earlier and I remembered it being a bit better but still a ‘chain-style’ place. The entrance is on the mall side, but the back terrace faces the... More

The food was average and (obviously) pricey cos of the location. The view was great, overlooking the sea where lots of water activities happen during lunch time. In terms of atmosphere etc., its great, but in terms of food, it was very average

I had dinner there with my family of six last week. All-in-all it was a fair dinner but not worth the price we paid. I have to admit though, having lived in Italy for three years, we are a bit snobbish about Italian cuisine so we were hoping for something better... I guess the laminated menus should have been a...

The pepperoni pizza was plenty for one and well balanced - not too heavy - the pepperoni was very flavorful. The cannellini with chicken, spinach and mushroom was exceptionally good. The sauce had an acidic edge that made it the flavors pop and the chicken had a char that added depth. The two dishes weren't much more than 300 pesos... More

Located inside center hallway of La Isla Mall. Price is reasonable and delicious. Patrons can seated outside facing the bridge and lake area to enjoy food and nice sun shine there. Exclusive some of the patrons were smoking there. From the entrance area, saw the menu but told the food items will not be serving this afternoon by waitress so... More

Location: It is in the middle of the La Isla shopping complex in the hotel zone. Very easy to get to. Service: It was mediocre. They took our order but only checked back on us once. Atmosphere: There wasn't a lot of effort put into the decor. The lights were turned up and were from the ceiling. There were spots... More

The best thing about this place is the location. Ambience is also pretty good and prices were in line with average food. The service and food were average, at best. We had a couple of cocktails, and split a large salad & a Margarita pizza. We asked for the pizza to have extra basil and be crispy. The pizza that... More
