Only schedule we got for lunch on a Sunday was at 2:45 in the afternoon and the place was packed. We took a table outside enjoying the beautiful cold weather and sea breeze before taking the table reserved for our group. The food was delicious and presentation was even picture perfect. A little pricey but i guess that's what you... More

We always treat ourselves @ Pilu' Restaurant for a special occasion and if we don't have one, well,...we create it!! Pilu' is a very nice Beach restaurant, the food is Very Good along with the service and the "simpatia" of the people working in there. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had an amazing lunch here. Definitely a date place, not for children. We found the food to be excellent, ambience was great as well as the service. The only recommendation I would make is to make reservations to assure you can get you in as it books up quickly.

Again Pilu was fantastic, the service is always right on the mark and you could not ask for a better location, food is out of this world. I will continue to dine at Pilu time and time again. Legends

Pilu is a restaurant with a most interesting menu, changed regularly. The food and service is always excellent and most tables have views over Freshwater Beach and the ocean. The staff are so kind and courteous that a visit is a special experience. They have many special offers including birthday discounts and I understand they are introducing BYO Fridays in... More

Likes: The italian hot chocolate which I must say was the highlight of the evening...doesn't say much for the meal? The service was great, tentative, friendly, knowledgeable staff. The crusty sourdough bread and butter was fresh and delicious. Now: For a 2 hat restaurant, sadly it didn't deliver. I expected some creativity behind the dishes and was hoping for some... More

Firstly location is beautiful and service is good. But the 2 & 3 course meals that you must have on a weekend are very over priced. If you order the sucking pig for 2 don't expect a big serving of pork like every other fine dining restaurant would serve! We received 1.7 tiny pieces of pork and 1 sliver of... More

From the moment you walk into Pilu, greeted with friendly Italian smiles, you feel quite special. The scenery from the front room is absolutely divine (make sure you go at lunchtime to get the view and the sunset). The waitstaff and sommelier are incredibly knowledgeable. They know not only what they are serving you but where the produce is from... More

I loved the dining experience at this restaurant. It is overlooking the beach at Freshwater with glorious views and breeze. The decor is "Hampton's Chic"and beautifully fresh adding to the light airy feel. We Had a wonderful waitress from France who explained the menu very well. The food is Sardinian...think Italian with lots of fish! We decided on the seven... More

Special occassion, celebrating with friends and we couldnt of asked for anything more. The food was so good that my mouth is watering thinking about what Im going to say. Deep fried mussels, salmon beautifully presented. Suckling pig is a dish to come here for. Crackling that is delicate (yep) crisp and out of this world. They even make brocoli... More
