Excellent visit to this really authentic Italian restaurant - food and wine were exceptional along with the service. The lead waitress made sure we got all the various offers available from the fixed price menu. Throughly recommend.

Four of us dined. Apart from us there was only two other people dining that night so very little atmosphere. Food ok but not amazing. Service was excellent as was the Chianti.

We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Tonight's meal was even better as it was a £10 2 course special and worth every penny. I believe the decor is ideal for the style and image of this restaurant. There are too many "uniform" chain style restaurants around now, this is a very comfortable and welcoming environment.

Felt like stepping back in time- food was very dated, (simplistic, rudimentary and bland) twee Italian decor hasn't been touched for at least 15 years, (think hanging plastic fruit and gaudy trinkets) and staff are less than friendly. The only jolly person was the chef who occasionally beamed out a wide smile from the kitchen! Nothing was particularly bad but... More

Booked on the17th April 15 while there for a short break. We love this restaurant and go at least once every time we visit the island. We have always had a lovely welcome and excellent service. Food was wonderful as always. Looking forward to out next visit in July.

Pavarottis is a really nice small Italian restaurant. The food was excellent and the prices reasonable. At the weekend I would either book or go early as its very popular.

After previously eating at Pavaroti's a number of years ago we were both very impressed with the food and service we received. Our waitress was very friendly and looked after our dining needs fantastically. When our food arrived we were definitely not disappointed. Our pasta dishes were extremely tasty. We will defitently be visiting again soon

We received a very warm welcome to our walk-in booking. It was the start of the dinner service. I didn't like the musty smell of the restaurant but I could see it was clean so it wasn't too much of a concern. I also didn't care for the mixed matched decorations, it didn't create a sense of identity at all.... More
