We were staying at a nearby caravan park and, as it was our anniversary on the Wednesday, decided to book a table (for four) at the nearest Italian restaurant. It is closed on a Monday and Tuesday so we booked by leaving a... read more

Our waitress for the meal,Patricia, was an absolute delight. We four had double starters for 2 and 2 plain garlic breads to start. The wine flowed. My pizza was crisp and even. A wonderful evening until England lost at rugby. Full marks to Patricia...a credit to Poland and customer service.

We have been here several times in the last 4 years and are never disappointed. The food and service are always fantastic - calamari is a must, and the wine recommendations very knowledgable. Thanks

I will admit TripAdvisor nearly put me off coming. However, it was a wet night and I was hungry and the reviews weren't bad enough to make me walk up the hill. What a delightful little place this restaurant is. To start we had the garlic bread with cheese which was yummy, and some olives which were huge and very... More

Read about Pavarotti in the IoW food guide, its open a bit later than other places and has a simple but quality menu. Service friendly, mix of local and tourists clients, reasonably priced.

Six of us ate here during our week in Shanklin. The food was delicious. I would recommend the arancini and the pizza. The prices are reasonable and the staff are lovely.
