Since reviewing Tomasso last summer, we have returned three more times this season, as it's a two block walk from our Villa on the island. Each time we have continued to be impressed with everything from the food to the service. Our children absolutely love the lasagna, and we recently... read more

We loved the fact that we could eat at our bar table rather than move to the restaurant . It was cosy with a nice atmosphere - the Italian menu was a lovely change to all the fish we'd been eating elsewhere . Great place and lovely friendly service.

We visited with 8 guys and I thought the food was good and the prices where not to unreasonable! The dinners were good and they handled having 8 golfers very well and no one complained! All in all a nice place to grab some Italian food!

Ok have been to Tomassos before had a nice meal. This time was no different except that my daughter got the wrong meal. They made the correct meal but the rest of the family had already finished before hers came out. It was Easter and did not want to make a stink but did not get any compensation for not... More

Had dinner with wife at Tomasso. Not exceptional food..but excellent service and nice atmosphere in bar. Wife had lasagna and I had eggplant parmigiano. Both were ok..portions adequate...nicely served. Bread was not very tasty. With 1 glass of wine and 1 iced tea..bill came to almost 100.00 with 20% tip. Waiter was great.

While the dining choices are very limited on Island, this was a nice Italian restaurant with well-prepared menu selections, a fine wine list, and nice cocktail and liquor list as well. I was particularly impressed that the bar served some very classy and high end scotches, in addition to all other spirits. We enjoyed the menu and while it's not... More

Although I usually steer clear of "specials," in this case I followed my waiter's advice and ordered the scallops with faro, spinach and hazelnut cream sauce. Thanks, Joe-it was delicious! Huge portion--I couldn't even finish it! Same with the tiramisu, which we shared. It was a different take on the classic, and was good, but not what I expected/wanted.

Our booking was for 7pm last night, but inspire of that they were unable to find us a table until 7.30. There was no chance of a drink in the bar while we were waiting as all the tables were full and there was a long queue at the bar waiting for drinks. Clearly short staffed. When eventually we were...
