Had a lovely evening at this place - we ordered two pizzas and it was plenty between 3 of us! We had Diavola (very spicy as it has chopped chillies on it!) and we had the Italiana which was just lovely. Service was attentive without being over bearing and food came quickly. For dessert we had a semi-freddo, creme brûlée... More

We went here the first night we arrived in Mauritius and it was a great choice. We weren't overly hungry so just had the pizza but it was superb. The wine list was very extensive and the meals that we're being delivered to other diners in the restaurant looked impressive. If only we had room for desert........they looked fantastic. We... More

Yes I'm italian, but believe me in this restaurant you'll find a pale image of italian cooking. The guys are from Tuscany, and they really do their best, but it's not so easy nowadays (like was in the recent past) to find italian food to assemble in a real italian made dish. So said, it's not bad at all, and... More

Their pizzas are so delicious that we almost never go for pizza anywhere else on the island now. Each has the perfect blend of quality ingredients, on top of a perfectly cooked thin crust. Items on their menu are reasonably priced and the service and atmosphere are great. A must if you're in the Grand Baie area!

We enjoyed a lovely pizza night here. Quality ingredients and well sized portions. Service is bubbly and efficient. Loved the way this restaurant is slightly hidden, yet once you sit down, one feels one is going to have authentic Italian fair. Cold meat and cheese platter was delicious as was the creme brulee. Thin based pizzas are huge. Enjoyed feeding... More

The food is great - some of the best burrata and Parma ham I have ever had. My wife had a steak that was cooked to perfection. The ambience was great with a solo guitarist playing in the background. My only reservation with this place was the service which was at times excellent and at other times slow and forgetful... More

We all had the specials from the board, it was truffle evening that night. We choose the burrata with Italian ham and focaccia for starters. Lovely big peace of cheese with truffle on top, divine. Our son had the cheeseboard with pickles jams and fruits, very nice too. For mains we had the truffle risotto and steak with truffle shavings... More

Ok if you like bruschetta for starters because there is little else to choose from! I had a pizza which was good and my husband had the steak which was also good but not the best he has had. Service was ok but again not the best. We had made a reservation after reading reviews on here but we needn't... More

the first thing I wanted to thank you for your contribution. I'm sorry that you have not experienced the true spirit of our restaurant, if in the evenings when you were our guests there was not a lot of people, it's only for our decision not to project footbal match, we think to be a restaurant and not the right...
