We went back to see if the whiteout and tears in menu were still there. YES , they are still a mess. We had reservations and then cancelled because of horrible reviews we read on their own website. The next day we heard someone on the beach say they ate there and it was awesome! A 6 out of 5... More

The view is awesome. Be sure to make a reservation for sunset. That said, the food was mediocre. We had no problem with the service. Our waitress was overwhelmed but the manager stepped in and helped. We did not have to wait long for food or wine. We ordered a reasonably priced Italian red that was yummy. My risotto was... More

Reasonably priced with great outdoor seating. Lamb was very good. Service was very good. You pay for the sunset view and unless there are clouds, not much of an event. Would go back if we return.

Very bad food for unreasonable high prices with cheapest ingredients. You should definitely avoid this restaurant! This is not about Italian cuisine.

We went to see the lighthouse as an afternoon "excursion." You can't go in it so the only thing to do is grab lunch at Lat Trattoria. The view was amazing for sure! Otherwise, the restaurant was dirty, I had to ask them to change my seat cushion which was disgusting on both sides. The food was not fresh. I... More

We are avid travelers, and know good Italian food. This I will tell you is absolutely not even close. I ordered veal and the texture was tough and took effort to chew. The sauce was thin and lacked flavor. The pasta was al dente and the Alfredo sauce was a good effort but not of high standards. My waiter told... More

This is a good restaurant but not one I would truly rave about the food. It's good quality and the wine good. The best thing is to dine outside on the patio for sunset. Call way ahead to request a seat outside for dining time for sunset. It is worth the call and you won't be disappointed!
