Lovely New Years meal

Went here twice during or stay in Varkala. New Years was the standout, really good food (although pizza only average). Great bottle of wine too. Fantastic service throughout.

Had the olio aglio pasta with added chicken.... Not sure what type of chicken it was.... But the cut or style was weird. Hard to enjoy... Could have been ground I guess

We stayed at varkala for our anniversary and we had all our meals and drinks from caffe italiano. We were hooked to this place. The manager bobby took very good care of us. He was extremely hospitable and very friendly. He recommended the chicken lasagne and it is to die for. The cocktails are reasonably priced and have actual alcohol... More

Pizza is good, but other than that the food wasn't too impressive. View is superb but pasta and Indian food here isn't so great.

This restaurant has a lovely view from the top deck and is well priced but you have to have time as the service is slow. Child friendly food and the puppies really were the stars for them

I simply love this place... Brilliantly located around a bend.. The upper deck of this restaurant has the most fantastic view on the entire strip. Open deck covered by the branches of an almond tree. Food is good. I enjoyed our breakfast and other meals. The seafood pizza, the seafood clear soup and the grilled seafood platter... Delicious 😋 The... More
