We have been coming to the island for many years and this was our first visit to Il Tempio. Every now and then, first impressions are misleading. The Italian cuisine was outstanding and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner and staff. Friendly and accommodating in one of the most beutiful settings on the island. The moderate... More

Words cannot describe how we were misled about this "restaurant". It's actually a beach-side eatery, to be kind, with cheap Rubbermade white plastic chairs (that they covered in a square of navy fabric), and tacky surroundings. Even as a daytime beach eatery, it is extremely cheap and rundown. As for the food, the portions are small (my husband's main dish... More

Our dress code is elegant casual and this is written on every magazine we are in.When the customers entered in the restaurant with a long dress,jacket and tie complaining with us about the information that they got from their hotel about our dress code,we knew already that they were doing any possible thing to let us pay for their overdress.We...

This restaurant was featured in the magazine supplied in our hotel room along with others rated some of the best in the world. We took this as a good sign that it would be a good place. Sadly, it was very average and no more. The staff were not properly trained to serve at a top establishment and everything about... More

Sorry to read that our place was not the one that the reviewer was expecting for....If we have a high rate is because other customers saw us in a different way,perhaps a place with fresh food in a friendly atmosphere and this what we want to be.....And if for the reviewer we are the right place to be after a...

We have been coming to this island for over 30 years (scary but true) we've seen them come we've seen them go we've even dined with them on occasion but this little Caribbean Italian gem weathers the storms by simply being the best authentic Italian restaurant west of Bari!!A bold claim but you be the judge.

It is said to have been Luciano Pavarotti favourite Italian restaurant on the Island. I confirm. Just on the beach, in Fitts village, opposite Jordan supermarket. Easy to park. I like to do "local"places when I am abroad, but always dragged by the crew to try "fancy" European cuisine's one. This is a real Italian feeling, owned and run by... More

This is our fourth time in a row in Barbados at this time of year as a couple, and we have regularly enjoyed Il Tempio for its food and service. But this year, we visited every day, even when not dining for the superb bar and happy hour drinks. So, this time, it was not just a few meals during... More

We returned this year to Barbados and visited Il Tempio again having enjoyed the lasagne so much the first time. We were a little nervous in case it had changed and we were going to be diappointed but I'm glad to say it was just as nice again! A beautiful setting and the staff are friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
