Pesto muy bueno

Amazing service, drinks, and food. We ordered the tuna ceviche to start, which was outta this world good. Melted in our mouths.

Enjoyed Amici for its service and really tasty food. The portions were a bit small for me personally though and the prices a bit too high.

We went here for our daughters 10th birthday dinner - she loves pizza and we heard the cook was Italian. The pizzas were great but they forgot to make my daughter's. We waited and waited until I flagged down our server. They made her's next but no apologies or free 'birthday cake' for the long delay.

We ate here twice during our 5 night stay and both times everything was perfect. The pizza and pasta are delicious and all the ingredients are fresh and flavourful. Service was quick and pleasant and I enjoyed both of our suppers.

Pizza was best in town (better then tomate or the bakery). I thought the pasta menu was a bit small for an Italian place as there wasn't alot of pastas... More

I went with my family and really enjoyed the place and their food. Nice mood and service. We had 4 different pizzas and they were all really good. My recommendarton would be the Diavola: spicy salami!
